Published disclosure returns
The Electoral Commission of Queensland (ECQ) publishes disclosure returns as they are submitted. We review these returns only to ensure they adhere to Queensland laws. Any failure to meet legislative requirements may result in compliance action, penalty notices, prosecution or all the above.

Electronic Disclosure System (EDS)
The EDS is an innovative, real-time system that allows anyone to view the disclosures provided by donors, candidates and political parties. You can view these disclosures as soon as they are lodged. You can search by name, party, donor, electorate, date, gift value and much more. Then, export the report to Excel or print to PDF.
The data shown in reports appears as users uploaded it, and isn't verified or validated by ECQ.
