Keeping your friendly society details up to date

How to advise us of changes

You must advise us in writing of any changes to your rules, name, trustees or address.

Changes to rules

A friendly society may submit changes made in accordance with its rules and rule changes must be signed by 3 members and the secretary. We recommend you seek independent legal advice in this regard.

Changes to trustees and other details

A friendly society must notify the Registrar in writing within 14 days of a change of trustees.

All other changes, such as change of name, address etc need to be made to the Registrar in writing, but the Act does not specify a timeframe.
