Charities and not-for-profits

It is critical for organisations operating in the not-for-profit environment to understand their entitlements as well as their obligations. Without such knowledge a not-for-profit organisation is putting itself and its objectives at a disadvantage.

We advise all types of entities in the not-for-profit environment, including charitable and other philanthropic trusts, charitable companies and incorporated societies. We can assist not-for-profit organisations to establish the most effective legal structure for the achievement of their objectives, and with regulatory compliance and taxation issues including guiding entities through the registration process for charitable status.

Social Enterprises

We have substantial experience advising social enterprises, including advice on how trusts can be used to help achieve an enterprise's social impact or mission. We have a longstanding relationship with New Zealand's leading social enterprise incubator, the Ākina Foundation. For more information about our work with Ākina, see here.
