2. Not-for-profit status


Be not-for-profit.

The Australian Tax Office provides information on how to define a ‘not-for-profit’ organisation or company and the forms of evidence that demonstrate an organisation’s not-for-profit status. Usually, this is evidenced through a ‘non-profit’, ‘dissolution’ or ‘winding up’ clause in the organisation’s or company’s rules/constitution.


A copy of the CLS’s rules or constitution, as lodged with CAV or ASIC.


None required.
