Amending a previously submitted disclosure form

On this page

A person who lodged a disclosure form, or that person’s successor as party or official agent, may amend a previously lodged disclosure form.

This may be done as a result of an audit by the NSW Electoral Commission or if the person later realises that political donations or electoral expenditure were omitted or incorrectly disclosed.

For all disclosures made from FY18/19 onwards, amendments can be made online. To amend a disclosure prior to this date, email fdc@elections.nsw.gov.au or contact 1300 022 011 during business hours.
