Approximately $15 million in donations was disclosed by donors, a small proportion of parties’ total funding.
The Liberal Party received $95 million in funding across its eight separate divisions, which includes donations and other receipts such as investment returns and rent.
The ALP received funding of $71 million, the Nationals $12 million and the Greens $16 million.
The political reporting scheme does not require multiple donations to different entities of the same party to be disclosed, meaning the source of millions in political funding remains unknown.
