    Our focus is to support charities to meet the ACNC’s Governance Standards, but we also work to support good governance beyond these standards. This guide focuses on good governance and how it helps charities in the context of their obligations. We have highlighted when something is a legal obligation, rather than being optional or suggested. Makinson d’Apice is an Australian law firm that specialises in property and construction, corporate and commercial, strata and medium density law, charities and not-for-profits, banking and finance, insurance and commercial litigation, private clients and legal services .

      Following the publication of the House of Lords select committee on charities’ report Stronger Charities for a Stronger Society (PDF, MB), we are publishing a series of posts covering the take-away issues and what charities can do in response, highlighting what we think are the best available resources to help you if you want to take action.. Look out for further post. Nonprofit Governance is an indispensable guide to, and through, all of the governance policymaking that is unfolding, to improve the management of nonprofit organizations as well as to help organizations be in compliance with nonprofit governance law.

    Operating a registered charity Important notice Societies (not-for-profit corporations) that are created and operate in British Columbia need to complete their transition to the new rules in order to be compliant with the new Societies Act by Novem   law. As a measure of our interest in this area, we ask about an organization’s governance, both when it applies for tax-exempt status and then annually as part of the information return that many charities are required to file with the Internal Revenue Service. Some of the policies and practices we commend for your consideration are divided into.
