To incorporate a society in New Zealand you must submit an application, along with the required documents, and pay a registration fee.
Once you've registered your incorporated society, you'll need to maintain it by keeping your details up to date, filing annual financial statements, and meeting your other legal obligations.
Once you've registered your incorporated society, you'll need to file annual financial statements and update other society details when they change.
When an incorporated society reaches the end of its 'life', it must be wound up and removed from the register. There are two ways this can be done – by dissolving the society, or having it liquidated.
An application can be made to us to have an incorporated society restored to the register, by the society itself, or by a creditor. You'll need to provide evidence to support your application.
Forms you'll need to register your incorporated society and keep it up to date, along with a schedule of fees payable.
