Law changes for societies

The Incorporated Societies Act 2022 (2022 Act) came into force on 5 October 2023.

Existing societies will need to reregister under the 2022 Act if they want to remain as an incorporated society. You should understand what it means to reregister and what happens if your society doesn’t reregister. There are a few things your society will need to do before it reregisters, such as preparing some documents and possibly adopting some new processes to comply with the 2022 Act.

Our ‘Law Changes Hub’ will help your society —

  • understand the key changes the 2022 Act brings
  • learn what’s involved in reregistering, and
  • access videos and tools to help you with the process.
