Incorporated Societies

An incorporated society is a group or organisation that has been registered under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908 and, when incorporated, is authorised by law to run its affairs as though it were an individual person. This means that the members are not personally liable for the society's debts, contracts or other obligations. Likewise, members do not have any personal interest in any property or assets owned by the society.

There are a wide range of groups and organisations that have become incorporated societies. These include sports clubs, social clubs, music and cultural groups, special interest and activist organisations.

As with Charitable Trusts, at Matthew Underwood Limited we understand the practicalities of incorporated societies. Contact us to discuss the benefits and how they may be applied to your situation.
