Description

The Electoral Commission of Queensland is responsible for the Electronic Disclosure System (EDS), which provides real-time reporting of political donations. It aims to streamline the disclosure process while increasing transparency surrounding gifts. All entities conducting or supporting political activity in Queensland are required to submit a disclosure return to the Electoral Commission of Queensland. These include reporting of gifts and loans, as well as periodic reporting of other dealings such as advertising and expenditure. EDS makes these returns readily available to the public, providing faster and easier access to political financial disclosure information. The EDS is an outcome of the Electoral Commission of Queensland's ongoing commitment to the people of Queensland, to drive improvements to election services and meet changing community needs.
