NGOs that work for the benefit of the general public are an important element of contemporary societies. Foundations and associations perform social tasks within which the state can be inefficient – for various reasons. These entities live off subsidies, donations, and contributions to a large extent and they are subject to special regimes of legal and financial liability.
A professionally and comprehensively planned structure of an NGO is the foundation of the efficient operation of the entity and security of its statutory activity. Apart from the pursuit of statutory goals, NGOs must keep in mind the responsibility for the ongoing activity, completeness and correctness of documentation, and completion of formalities and procedures required by law.
Legal support will be helpful at the stage of creation of an entity, development of its structure, drafting of documents on data processing, as well as the ongoing activity and cooperation with third parties. A tax advisor, an accountant, and a settlement expert will provide consulting within taxes and settlements, in particular settlements of donations and contributions, which will let the organizations focus on the achievement of their statutory goals.
NGOs – the scope of services:
- legal support in the creation of foundations and associations, including drafting of essential documents and motions to the National Court Register;
- ongoing legal, tax, and accounting services for foundations and associations;
- legal consulting within paid work for public benefit;
- legal support within obtaining of a public benefit institution status;
- consulting within the protection of intellectual property rights of NGOs;
- drafting and verification of agreements concluded between NGOs and third parties.
