Churches are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to comply with a new crackdown on charities' financial reporting standards.

The Church of Scientology filed their annual returns last week, more than 10 months overdue. They received nearly $1.4m, and spent just under $600,000.

Charities who spend more than $1m per year are being forced to open up their books, in some cases for the first time, under new laws which came into effect this month.
