The percentage of accepted tasks this Tasker has completed.

Hello, I am a solicitor with a lot of experience with set up of NFPs and Aust Charities (note: these are 2 different types of organisations), as well as drafting the governing rules, applications for tax concessions, DGR status, OAGDS and various other applications.

(Firstly, before I discuss my quote: good on you - this is a great NFP idea! I can’t wait to hear more!)

- telephone consultation with you (30mins is usually sufficient) and get your full instructions

- provide you with written letter containing legal advice covering all the essential matters to enable you to start off on the right path.

- this letter of advice is absolutely essential to avoid problems down the track and puts you in the position of being able to make informed decisions (and to do so confidently!)

- the letter of advice (among other things) includes:

1. The most appropriate legal structure for your particular organisation, advise you about the cost to set up and maintain recommended option
2. Eligibility for ACNC registration (and how much you would need to budget for this)
3. Eligibility to apply to be a tax concession charity (and how much to budget for this)
4. General DGR considerations

- Once you accept my quote you will be provided a formal legal quote (cost disclosure) showing the fixed fee amount.

- As a solicitor I hold professional indemnity insurance to protect my clients.

- I also provide a range of other services for my NFP/Charity clients around Aust

Hi Susan. My own NFP is a registered charity with DGR status and was one of the first applications to be approved when the ACNC was formed. There are various stages to progress through. I have set up 4 NFPs to various levels. My background is legal and I can certainly help you but be aware that it will take time, depending on what type and level and/or status you wish to obtain. Please let me know if I should make an offer. Kind regards
Are you wanting assistance with establishing the business? Legal background here, experience within business sector.
I have a lot of volunteering experience in this area and like the others, would be keen to learn more.
Hi Susan, I'm really passionate about the Not for Profit sector and have significant experience in Aged Care. I'd love to hear more about it and would be able to start whenever is required. Please feel free to contact me as well.
Hi Susan, I'd be interested in hearing more also. I work in the NFP sector, would like to understand more about the requirements of your task.
