Charities & non-profits

A charity is a non-profit organisation which has a charitable purpose such as the relief of poverty or sickness. A charity can be a company or an association. An advantage of running a charitable company is that it can operate in any State of Australia. An advantage of running a charitable association is that it is cheaper to start up and even easier to run than a charitable company. If you have not set up a company or association you will need to do that first. See our Company or Association page.

Tax concessions

Charities and non-profit organisations may be entitled to receive tax concessions such as income tax exemption and deductible gift recipient status or DGR. Income tax exemption means that an organisation does not have to pay income tax on funds received, whilst DGR means that private individuals who donate to an organisation recieve a tax deduction on their donation. Please also see our Taxation page. LME assists clients to apply for charity status or tax concessions, for highly competitive fees below, although approval by the ATO cannot be guaranteed.
