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.

Read section 26 of the Charitable Trust Act 1957 for more information.


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:


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.
