Categories, donation types and party names 101

Categories are determined from publicly available information about a corporation or trust. As we categorise more groups we make tweaks to these categories. See all categories >

Party names are wildly inconsistent. We’re working to standardised them into Short Name – State e.g. Liberal – NSW, National – VIC, etc.

We’re also working to group parties into their federal structures, so for example you can select Party Group = Liberal/National to show all Coalition / Liberal and National parties combined.

Donations vs Other Receipts?
Not all transactions here are donations, some are considered ‘other receipts’ which may be like a donation, but sometimes not. Confusing, right? Get the low-down on how AEC disclosures work >
