Our strategy

We help charities and not-for-profits streamline legal compliance and red tape, so you can focus on your cause.

We will work closely with you to provide solution-oriented advice tailored to your organisation’s unique identity and needs.

Our team has established an Australian charitable fundraising arm for a major international charity. Additionally, we have set up a major online crowdfunding foundation and restructured a well-known gym group as a not-for-profit company. We advise a peak body and preeminent Australian education provider in relation to its not-for-profit status.

Additionally, our firm has advised and acted on tax-deductible funds. For example, establishing a tax-deductible fund for Australia’s leading online crowd-fund company, and setting up an Australian based tax-deductible fundraising structure with multiple funds for a leading international university. Additionally, we assist a well-established health retreat to structure a tax-deductible social enterprise framework.  

Further, we advise on the following concerns related to charities and not-for-profits:

  • Obtaining fundraising licenses in all States and Territories;
  • Establishing a public benevolent institution with capacity to send funds overseas;
  • Advising religious groups on purchasing property through charitable structures; and
  • Responding to a breach of compliance notice issued by the ACNC;

We are also understanding of clients’ financial concerns. Therefore, we offer cost effective assistance. Additionally, we offer fixed fee services.
