Recent years have seen a series of changes to the Victorian Incorporated Associations legislation in an effort to reduce red tape for community organisations. Many of the amendments had immediate effect but others had deferred commencement times.

In April 2012, the Victorian Parliament passed the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012 to introduce new requirements and repeal the previous Act and amendments. However the date from which the repeal and new provisions will apply has not yet been announced. We expect the new Act to commence at the same time the new Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission begins on 1 October 2012.

We have summarised some of the key changes that will occur when the new Act commences.
