Part 10 of the NT Electoral Act requires candidates, registered political parties and their associated entities, broadcasters and publishers, and certain donors, to disclose information regarding political contributions and electoral expenditure above certain thresholds to the NT Electoral Commission. The reporting thresholds for the NT are lower than under Commonwealth legislation.

The NTEC has prepared a number of handbooks and forms to assist parties, candidates, donors and other affected persons to comply with the disclosure provisions of the Act.  While the manuals are intended as a user-friendly guide to the disclosure requirements, they do not substitute for specific legal advice on detailed compliance issues.  Users are urged to seek their own independent advice where necessary.

Completed disclosure forms or returns are available for inspection on this website and at NTEC offices so that the public may be informed about the financial dealings of parties, candidates and others involved in the election process.  The aim is to prevent political corruption by making the financing of political parties and candidates as transparent as possible. 

More information, as well as handbooks and forms, are available from the links below.
