Why do I need a lawyer’s assistance in setting up a charity?
Setting up your new charity is an exciting time to make a positive difference, but the legal side of things can be confusing. Our lawyers are here to help!
Assistance in setting up a charity
Phone consultations with our expert lawyers
Having your charity’s legal structure set up properly is the first step to getting started.
Whether you want an incorporated structure (like an incorporated association or company limited by guarantee), or an unincorporated structure (like an unincorporated association), Sprintlaw can help.
Setting up your charity right from the start can save you huge headaches down the track, and give you the peace of mind to focus on what really matters – your cause! Read more here.
The options include but aren’t limited to:
The structure that best suits your charity will depend on what you plan to do, who you are trying to benefit, where you wish to operate from and what assets you intend to own. This is where a lawyer can help you find the best structure for your charity.
Depending on the type of NFP organisation you have, different tax concessions are available and the process for accessing each concession varies. In addition to tax registrations, your organisation may need other licences, permits or registrations to operate. A lawyer will work with your organisation to identify the entitlement to tax concessions based on your structure.
Our fixed-fee Charity Set Up packages start at $2300 + GST. It includes phone consultations with our expert lawyers, assistance with the registration process (for example, with ACNC) and answers to any legal questions you might have. Our expert lawyers have experience working with a range of NFP organisations, so we’re always happy to help.
