Restoring a trust board
If the Registrar of Incorporated Societies is satisfied that a trust board is still carrying on its operations, the Registrar can restore the board to the register.
Once the restoration has been completed the board is revived as if it had never been removed.
How do you apply to restore a trust board to the register?
The board may apply to be restored by sending the following to the Registrar:
- A request in writing that the declaration of dissolution be revoked and confirming that the trust board is still carrying on its operations.
- The board's current contact details (if these have changed).
- If the Board’s trust deed or rules have changed, include a signed copy of the rule changes, with the alteration of rules coversheet; or submit a full set of rules if the Registrar does not hold a copy on the register.
Note | There is no fee to apply to restore a charitable trust and no additional documents need to be filed.
How is the application processed?
- The application will be reviewed to ensure all requirements are met.
- The application and revocation of dissolution are processed on the same day.
- The applicant will be notified by letter of the outcome of the request.
- The Registrar will give public notice of all restored boards monthly in the New Zealand Gazette.
