RECORDED WEBINAR: PBIs: Understanding and advising PBIs post-Hunger Project

Tuesday 24th March 2015

Duration: approx. 2 hours 

The concept of a Public Benevolent Institution has expanded following the landmark Hunger Project decisions of the Federal Court in July 2013 and the Full Federal Court in June 2014. Many not-for-profits are asking whether the cases affect their eligibility for PBI status or whether they might expand their activities in new ways.
 
This presentation will help legal and accounting practitioners advise not-for-profits on their eligibility for PBI status, and assist PBI executives and boards in understanding particular legal issues that are emerging following the Hunger Project cases and other recent decisions.
  • Advising on PBI status:
    • What did the Hunger Project cases decide, and why is it so significant?
    • How do the cases interact with the existing caselaw on PBIs?
    • How have the ACNC and ATO responded?
  • Advising PBIs on particular issues:
    • Fundraising by PBIs and generating revenue streams as alternatives to government funding
    • Employment law issues for PBIs
    • State duty issues for PBIs, particularly those involved in housing projects, following the Community Housing Ltd v Clarence Valley Council decision
This webinar is suitable for accountants and lawyers advising not for profits, and executives working for not for profits and charities - Australia wide. This webinar is for practitioners with some knowledge in this area and looking to improve their knowledge.
