2 or more societies may amalgamate as one society but only if each one is registered under the Incorporated Societies Act 2022 (2022 Act). The amalgamated society may continue as one of the amalgamating societies or as a new society. As part of the process, we remove the societies that aren't continuing from the Incorporated Societies Register.
The amalgamating societies need to prepare an amalgamation proposal that contains the information required by the Incorporated Societies Regulations 2023. They also need to prepare a constitution for the proposed amalgamated society that complies with the 2022 Act. You need to register the proposed amalgamation with the Registrar of Incorporated Societies by completing a manual form and delivering it to us before the date of the proposed amalgamation.
