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 now be carried out online. For this, you’ll need to set up an online services account with the Companies Office.
Using our online services enables quicker processing, allows you to check the progress of applications, and saves you the cost of postage.
You can, however, file all the necessary documents with us manually, if you prefer. This does not require an online services account. Both options are covered in the help guides on this website.
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.
