Not for profit organisations (NFPs) face specific challenges with often limited resources. One of the more difficult areas for small and volunteer run organisations can be finding reliable legal information and requirements.
The Not for Profit Law Information Hub contains information and resources for all Australian NFPs. They provide fact sheets and videos covering government reporting requirements, tax and insurance information all the way down to dealing with contracts, intellectual property and social media.
The site is updated regularly and you can sign up for their monthly newsletter to ensure you always have current information. It is all written in plain english and designed for people outside the legal profession to understand.
Remember, however, that the hub can only provide generic advice and information. If you have more specific needs you may need to seek out professional legal advice.
