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.
