Submissions and research

On occasion the Trust makes submissions to Central and Local government and other organisations on matters of concern or interest to the people in its region.

A review of the Incorporated Societies Act of 1908 began in 2010, and Trust Waikato submitted on the Law Commission’s Issues Paper in 2011. After considering feedback and reporting to Government, an Incorporated Societies Bill Exposure Draft, setting out the goals for the replacement Act, was released at the end of 2015. Formal consultation began in early 2016.  

Trust Waikato has submitted on the Incorporated Societies Bill Exposure Draft. The Trust is generally in support of the Bill, but recognises the increasing burden of compliance placed on the non-profit sector through recent legislative changes.  

The submission closing date is 30 June 2016. You can find out more about the consultation here 

Baker Hawes Consultants Ltd completed a report in October 2014 for Trust Waikato about investing in the Trust's region. The executive summary is available on the following link:

Investing in the Trust Waikato Region

In December 2011 the Trust made a submission to the External Reporting Board in response to its September 2011 consultation paper Accounting Standards Framework for General Purpose Financial Reporting by Public Benefit Entities.
