Electronic Disclosure System :

The Electoral Commission of Queensland (ECQ) has introduced a new Electronic Disclosure System (EDS) that allows real-time reporting of political donations.

EDS operates online at and replaces traditional paper-based forms. 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 ECQ. These include ‘real time’ reporting of gifts and loans, as well as periodic reporting of other dealings such as advertising and expenditure1.

EDS also makes these returns readily available to the public, providing faster and easier access to political financial disclosure information.

Introduction of EDS is an outcome of ECQ’s ongoing commitment to the people of Queensland, to drive improvements to election services and meet changing community needs.

What browsers can EDS run on?
The following desktop browsers and versions are compatible with EDS:
** Microsoft Internet Explorer version 11 and above
** Microsoft Edge version 14 and above
** Google Chrome version 53 and above
** Firefox version 48 and above
** Safari version 9 and above
** Opera version 42 and above

Any other browsers or those operating at earlier version numbers may not perform optimally.

The maps and reports are also designed to be compatible with mobile device browsers. However we recommend using a desktop browser if lodging a return.

I’m having trouble accessing a page in EDS, what do I do?
First, check your internet connection by checking another webpage. If that doesn’t work either you may have an issue with your connection. If EDS is the only page to have an issue, please contact ECQ

How do you discourage people from entering incorrect data?
Occasionally people may try and add incorrect or malicious data to EDS.

In order to mitigate this small risk, there are two features in place :
** All actions registered users undertake are logged.
** So if any malicious activities are reported, ECQ administrators are able to check the log to understand where the issue occurred.
** There is a 24-hour delay between donations being lodged by donors, and the data appearing in the public maps and reports.
