What is Incorporation?

Incorporation gives your Affiliate a legal structure.

You can determine if an organisation is incorporated by whether it has the word ‘incorporated’ after its name.

When a Touch Football Affiliate incorporates, it becomes its own legal entity. As a legal entity your Affiliate will continue to exist even if the committee members change over time.

Reasons Affiliates should be incorporated are:

  • Individual Committee members of your Affiliate are not personally liable for the actions of the sports club. Incorporation acts as a safe guard for the committee members.
  • Members and Committee members are protected against personal liability for the Affiliate’s debts.
  • Improved fundraising ability and increased eligibility for grants. Many local councils insist on your club being incorporated before allocating funds and allowing you to book grounds.
  • Enhanced ability to borrow money, open bank accounts and enter into leases.
