Justice Minister Kiri Allan says closing an electoral donations loophole will be a relatively simple fix.

A loophole in the law allowed an entity at arms-length from the party to take donations, without disclosing the donors.

Allan told Mike Hosking the Electoral Amendment Bill will tidy things up.
