If you're planning to set up a not-for-profit or charity, consider these points before you start.

Getting an IRD number for your not-for-profit

Find out when to get an IRD number and when to contact other organisations like MBIE or Charities Services. 

Getting approved as a not-for-profit

We need to approve your organisation as a not-for-profit before you can claim any tax benefits.

Use the right wording in your not-for-profit rules

Make sure you have the right information in your rules, constitution or other founding documents so we can approve you as a not-for-profit.
