The main election expenses are the candidate deposit costs. They consist of $2,000.00 for each Senate candidate and $1,000.00 for each House of Representative’s candidate.
For State and Territory, we need to have two (2) Senate candidates. This is to allow our party to be located “above the line” on the ballot paper.
We also allocate $500.00 for each candidate for the printing of “how to vote” material at election time.
It is noted that the election expenses are tax deductible for each candidate (refer Australian Tax Office .
Donations made to the party are tax deductible for the taxpayer. This deduction is from a minimum amount of $2.00 up to a maximum deductible amount of $1,500.00 (refer Australian Tax Office).
