Ticket Buying Advice For Consumers

In Australia we love our thriving live entertainment industry – whether it be attending sport to cheer on our favourite teams, going to see our favourite bands and artists perform, or a night out at the theatre – we love supporting our vibrant entertainment culture.

The popularity of these events and the strong demand for tickets has led to concern among fans about the growing practice of ticket reselling and ticket scalping.

Guidance on the application of the ACL to the activities of charities, not-for-profits and fundraisers

The guide to the Australian Consumer Law for fundraising and other activities of charities, not-for-profits and fundraisers sets out general principles, supported by examples, to assist the charity and fundraising sector in understanding its obligations under the ACL.

The production of this guide is a result of stakeholder feedback provided during the Review of the ACL. Regulators developed this guide following interest from charities, not-for-profit and fundraisers who wanted more information to help them better understand their obligations under the ACL, particularly in relation to fundraising.
