Name of the society

Up one level

The name of the society must be included in the rules and must end with the word Incorporated.

The name of a society cannot be the same or deceptively similar to that of any other incorporated society or other body corporate. You should do a free register search on both the Companies Office website at www.companies.govt.nz and on the Register of Societies and Trusts at www.societies.govt.nz to ensure that there is no society or company already registered with a name that is the same or deceptively similar to the name you intend using. The exception is if you obtain the consent of the other organisation to use the name.
