Let BDO assist you to focus on what really matters

Non-compliance can result in penalties, interest and understatement penalties of up to 200%. You can also lose your Section 18 status and potentially lose donors.

Course Content

BDO is hosting a workshop on the tax implications of Non-Profit Organisations.

Organizations (NPOs) and Public Benefit Organizations (PBOs) are created with philanthropic intention and tax compliance is not necessarily top of agenda. Limited resources may constrain tax compliance which can pose a real risk to the very existence of an NPO. A common misconception is that once tax exempt, an NPO is exempt from all other taxes as well. Unfortunately, this may not be true.

This workshop will provide delegates with a high-level introduction to the legal landscape, and an understanding of the tax risks and responsibilities of NPOs and PBOs. The workshop will also illustrate through case studies to address practical and operational challenges.


BDO’s Subject Matter Experts will be available to answer your questions and provide guidance.
