Legal Structures for Not-for-Profit Organisations


Better Boards is pleased to present "Legal Structures for Not-for-Profit Organisations" in partnership with Vera Visevic, Partner at Mills Oakley.

The legal structure you choose for your organisation should meet your organisation’s needs, and allow for future development and growth of the organisation. Your organisation’s legal structure will affect its legal identity, governance structure, and reporting and compliance obligations.

This webinar will cover:

  • What legal structures are available?
  • The advantages and disadvantages of each legal structure.
  • The legal obligations attached to each legal structure.
  • How the right legal structure can help with:
    • mergers;
    • restructures;
    • social enterprises;
    • commercial activities; and
    • risk management.
  • The advantages and disadvantages of moving between legal structures.
