Do you want to register a charity or not-for-profit organisation? Congratulations!
We’ve helped many clients with social enterprises, not-for-profit organisations and charities, and we’d love to help you.

First, we assist you to decide whether you need an incorporated association or a company. If you will operate in one state only, an incorporated association may be sufficient. If you want to operate in more than one state, you will probably require a company. The most common type of structure used by charities and other not-for-profit organisations that operate across Australia is a public company limited by guarantee.

Second, we can incorporate the company and provide you with the right constitution for a public company limited by guarantee, which we lodge with ASIC on your behalf.

Third, we can assist you to register with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). In the ACNC registration process, you can apply for:

  • charity tax concessions. Charities need to register with ACNC before they can receive charity tax concessions from the ATO;
  • additional tax benefits if you are a public benevolent institution (PBI), health promotion charity (HPC) or charity for the advancement of religion; and
  • certain categories of deductible gift recipient (DGR) status.

If you would like to speak to us about registering a charity, please complete the form on this page or give us a quick call on 1300 544 755.

We will assess your needs free of charge and we will provide you with a fixed-fee quote for your peace of mind and certainty.

We understand that if you are registering a charity, you may be on a limited budget, and you have many tasks to achieve. Let us help you register quickly and correctly. We provide favourable prices for not-for-profit organisations and charities. We have considerable experience so we can help you apply for additional tax benefits and for DGR status.
