221CPublic disclosure of gifts—weekly reports

A reporting agent for a candidate, party, or non-party group must publish at least once each week, or part of a week, during a weekly reporting period a report about gifts received by the candidate, party, or non-party group during the previous 7 days.

A weekly report must state the following:

the amount of each gift of $1 500 or more;

if a gift, and any other gift or gifts received from the same person during the 12 months before the publication of the report, total $1 500 or more—the total amount;

for gifts mentioned in paragraph (a) or (b) received during the previous 7 days—

the number of gifts received; and

the date of each gift; and

the defined details for each gift.

In this section:

weekly reporting period means—

for an ordinary election—the period starting on 30 June in the year the election is to be held and ending at the end of the 30th day after polling day; and

for an extraordinary election—the period starting on the notification day of the determination under section 101 and ending at the end of the 30th day after polling day.

publish, for a weekly report, means make available—

on a website that is open for public viewing during the weekly reporting period; or

in a newspaper.
