Birthright New Zealand is a Trust with affiliate organisations throughout New Zealand. The governance of the Trust is carried out by up to nine Trustees, of whom at least 3 must be elected by the affiliate organisations. Four trustees may be appointed although the elected Trustees must always form the majority of trustees.
Annual Returns are due within 6 months of a charity’s balance date (financial year-end), or a longer period if an extension has been granted.
Here is a list of all the details changed by the charity, for example adding or removing officers, amending rules, changing balance dates or updating address details.
