Guide to establishing non-profit organisations in Australia
In Australia, non-profit organisations (whether charities or not) are normally established in one of three ways: companies, trusts and incorporated associations.
However, incorporated associations are specifically for organisations that are going to operate just within one of the Australian states. Therefore, in practice, non-profit organisations seeking to establish in Australia should think of starting as a company or as a trust.

This legal guide provides a short overview of what strategic litigation is, under what circumstances it might be appropriate to pursue it, and what must be considered before embarking on it.
