We are not constitutionally required to have an Audit but the Companies Office & Yachting New Zealand require Audited Accounts.

Below will give you some idea of why we are registered as an Incorporated Soc.


Obligations under the Incorporated Societies Companies Act - Important reminder for Club Treasurers.

Clubs and Class Associations are reminded of their obligations under the companies act that as an Incorporated Society you must file returns - a set of financial accounts and AGM minutes to the Companies Office at Companies Office Incorporated Societies, Private Bag 92061, Auckland Mail Centre, Auckland. A recent check has highlighted that there are a number of clubs and classes that have not filed their returns each year. Failure to do this means that you will be struck off the Incorporated Societies register. If you are unsure of your clubs status you can check by going into the Companies Office website - click on left menu 'Current Name & Search' / type club or class name in Search Box. If your club or class does not come up in results box then you should follow-up further with the Companies Office - ph. 0508 266 726.

It is important for clubs and classes to realise that being registered as an Incorporated Society offers protection to its officers and members - one of these being "Members have no personal liability for the debts, contracts or other obligations of their society."
The two exceptions to this is in the instance where debts or obligations are incurred from operations involving financial gain by personal members and the second from unlawful actions.

The Act provides some very important fundamental protection for your members and appointed officers hence our constitutional requirement that all member clubs are registered as incorporated societies. By not being incorporated your officers and members are at greater risk of personal liability for the debts of your club or association. A good example would be if a club incurred a debt that was more than the club could pay, in the case of an incorporated society the members are not personally liable for their share of that debt owed. If a club was not incorporated each member may be personally liable for a share of the debt owed.

If anyone would like to do the Audit in a Volunteer capacity or for a token payment then please let me know.
