Incorporated Associations

 

The Department collects information, including personal information, on these forms for the purposes of the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 and Associations Incorporation Regulation 1999. In line with this legislation, a register of this information and any documents required by the Department is available for the public to inspect (a fee applies).

Under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981, incorporated associations must lodge an annual return with the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) within one month after their Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The annual return consists of copies of certain documents accompanying Form 12 - Annual Return of Association. This form must be completed after the AGM to notify OFT of any changes to the association's postal address, office bearers, auditor and bank details.

Please note that OFT will send this form to your association's postal address, and it is not available for download from this website.
