Law changes for incorporated societies

The Incorporated Societies Act 2022 was passed on 5 April 2022

There is now a transition period to allow regulations to be developed and give societies time to become familiar with the new regime. Societies don’t need to do anything just yet, but there are things you could do now so that you are better prepared once it’s time to reregister.

Summary of the timeline as described in detail below.
