Becoming an incorporated society requires that you register and maintain your organisation on the Incorporated Societies Register. All the tasks needed to do this can be carried out online.
Using our online services
Before you can use our online services, you’ll need a RealMe® login, and an online services account with the Companies Office.
Doing things online enables quicker processing, allows you to check the progress of applications, and saves you the cost of postage.
If you prefer, you can file all necessary documents with us manually. This does not require an online services account. Both options are covered in the help guides on this website.
Confirming your authority to manage information
To manage your incorporated society's information on the register you’ll also need to confirm that you have the authority to do so. This is a simple one-off process.
Terms and conditions
When you create an online services account, you'll be asked to agree to our terms and conditions. These set out your responsibilities and help to ensure the information you provide is kept secure. By agreeing to our terms and conditions, you're committing to keeping your information on the register up to date.
A printable PDF guide ‘Getting started on the Incorporated Societies Register’ is available. You may wish to have this handy when setting up your online services account.
