The Electoral Commission of Queensland (ECQ) requires all political donations, gifts-in-kind and fundraising contributions of $1,000 or more to be disclosed within 7 business days by both the donor and the recipient. The reporting threshold of $1,000 is a cumulative total.
Your name and address is required; anonymous and overseas donations are not allowed. Political donations made in a personal capacity are tax deductible up to a certain threshold. Check the ATO website for more information.
It is an offense to make political donations totaling to more than $4,000 for State Campaign purposes to ALP Queensland and more than $6,000 (in total) to ALP Queensland’s endorsed candidates between 1 July 2022 and 25 November 2024. You may request a refund if you believe that you have exceeded the $4,000 cap for the Party and/or $6,000 cap for the Candidates. Alternatively, we may refund you the excess amount within six weeks to avoid breaching the donation cap laws.
