The Foundations and Associations Unit within MBR receives and processes applications for registration of organisations in terms of the Second Schedule of the Civil Code. The Deed/ Statute of the organisation, constituting the organisation, is forwarded to the Registrar for Legal Persons for registration. It should be accompanied by all relevant documentation, including copies of identification documents of involved parties. In case of an organisation which is registered with the Commissioner of Voluntary Organisation, evidence of such registration should also be produced.
Upon registration, the Registrar will issue a certificate of registration, showing that the organisation has been officially registered. The certificate of registration can be collected from MBR.
The applicable fees for the registration of an organisation are calculated according to the value of assets as indicated in below:
|Value of Assets||Registration Fee|
|Up to €1,500||€350|
|Over €1,500 but not exceeding €3,000||€350 with the addition of €23 for each €1,000 or part thereof in excess of €1,500|
