Associations Incorporation Act Changes Need Your Attention

(17/10/12 - CC)  Alert To Community Groups: Information sessions being held round Victoria

The Minister for Consumer Affairs has announced that new legislation regulating incorporated community and not-for-profit groups in Victoria, the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012, comes into effect on 26 November.

Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV) is writing to all associations, key stakeholders and councils to notify them of the changes, particularly in relation to reporting obligations.

Throughout October, November and December, Consumer Affairs Victoria will conduct more than 40 information sessions for incorporated associations.

The new legislation aims to reduce the regulatory burden and simplify financial reporting, trading, regulatory, registration and contractual responsibilities of incorporated associations.
