ECQ’s new Electronic Disclosure System (EDS) brings a new level of transparency to political funding with real-time disclosure. It is the first system of its kind in Australia and is being hailed as “historic” and a “game changer”.
From March 1, 2017 donors and recipients must disclose reportable gifts and loans within seven business days of the transaction. EDS publishes most of these records as soon as they are entered, giving the public unprecedented access to funding information.
For more details regarding disclosure obligations please read the Funding and Disclosure Handbook.
