Unincorporated associations

Declarations and offences


An individual, who is authorised to represent the unincorporated association, must make a declaration on the notification, and also on any reports submitted to us. The declaration will state that everything in the notification or report is accurate, and that it complies with the law.


Unincorporated associations and the individuals authorised to make the declarations for the association should be aware that offences will be committed if:

  • the association fails to give a notification or fails to report to the Commission, without reasonable excuse, within the relevant period
  • the association provides a notification or report that does not meet the reporting requirements set out by the law, without reasonable excuse
  • the authorised individual makes a false declaration
