What is a disclosure? 

A disclosure is the reporting of information to the NSW Electoral Commission relating to:
  • political donations received and made, and electoral expenditure incurred by:

    • candidates

    • groups of candidates

    • elected members

    • political parties

    • associated entities.

  • electoral expenditure incurred during a capped expenditure period and political donations received (for the purpose of that electoral expenditure) by:

    • third-party campaigners.

  • reportable political donations made by:

    • major political donors.

If a political participant falls into more than one of the above categories during a financial year, they must make separate disclosures for each. For example, a candidate who is also an elected member must lodge separate disclosures as a candidate and as an elected member.
