Welcome to the new register
We launched the new Incorporated Society Register website on 30 September 2019.
If you’ve used this register before, you may notice some changes to the way it looks and operates. Registering and maintaining your society can now be done online, as well as manually. To use our online services you’ll need an online services account.
Starting a society
To incorporate a society you must submit an application, along with the required documents, and pay a registration fee.
Before you can apply, however, there are a few things you’ll need to have already done.
Filing your annual financial statements
You must file annual financial statements with us, unless your incorporated society is registered with Charities Services.
There are two ways to file your annual financial statements. Which options you can use to file your annual financial statements will depend on when they are due.
Running your society
Once you've registered your incorporated society, you’re required by law to keep certain information about it up to date. This includes the society's addresses, name, and the rules by which it operates.
Societies must comply with their rules and also need to meet other legal obligations.
