Incorporation of an Association - Northern Territory

Description

Incorporation allows associations to establish a corporate identity and provides legal status in return for accepting certain legal responsibilities. An incorporated association has the benefits of limited liability, can enter into contracts, and can sue and be sued.

When you incorporate your association, it becomes a legally separate entity with the same powers as an individual. An incorporated association can own land, sign a lease and appear in court.

An incorporated association and its members are legally separate. Under normal circumstances, it provides protection to the management committee from personal liability for the actions of the incorporated association, provided they are carried out in good faith and due diligence.
