Please note that we have been notified that the Queensland Premier’s Disaster Relief Fund operates both an item 2 and an item 1 DGR. Members who are Private Ancillary Funds and Public Ancillary Funds must request a tax receipt under the item 1 charity (ABN 82 378 381 789) in order to comply with their legal requirement not to fund item 2 DGRs.
