Please be aware that, under the Electoral Act, ACT New Zealand is not allowed to receive an anonymous donation of more than $1,500.00. If it does, the balance in excess of $1,500.00 must be paid over to the Crown.
ACT New Zealand also must disclose the identity of any entity (person, company, trust etc) which donates over $15,000.00. This threshold applies to both (1) any one-off donation and (2) cumulative donations from one entity that total greater than $15,000.00 in any calendar year.
If you are an overseas person then the threshold for donations is reduced considerably to $1,500.00. If your donation is more than $1,500.00 and you are overseas person (as that term is defined in section 207K(1) of the Electoral Act) then the amount of your donation that exceeds $1,500.00 must be returned to you or if not done so, then it is forfeited to the Crown.
In addition to these provisions should you donate over $30,000 over any 12 month period (and not just a calendar year) it must be disclosed by the party within 10 working days.
Therefore please ensure you supply us with your personal details if donating more than $1,500.00. However, unless your donation is more than $15,000 in any calendar year, your personal details will not be disclosed.
