NPO registration

NonProfit Organisation (NPO) registration is a voluntary registration which is offered by the Department of  Welfare and Social Development. It replaces the old Fund Raising registration and is administered by the NPO Board.  In order to register as an NPO your documentation has to comply with certain minimum standards of good governance. Once you are registered, your details and documents become a matter of public record, as do the  financial and narrative reports which you have to submit annually.  NPO registration is aimed at transparency and accountability, and inspiring donor confidence.
