NPO Registration

Do you need funding for your business – which is ‘not for profit’? You will need to register a Non Profit Organisation (NPO) at the Department of Social Development (DSD). This will allow you to apply for funding directly at the DSD, as well as many other Government and Private Institutions with your NPO Number. 

We can assist with your Non Profit Organisation (NPO) Registration – just complete and submit the easy registration form below, and a friendly Consultant will contact you.


A Nonprofit Organisation (NPO) is an organisation that uses its surplus revenues to further achieve its purpose or ‘mission’, rather than distributing its surplus income to the Organisation’s Directors / Shareholders (or equivalents) as profit or dividends.

South Africa’s “Register of Nonprofit Organisations (NPO’s)” is a voluntary registration facility that enhances the credibility of the registered NPO – as it reports to a public office. The NPO Directorate, as a public office, holds information about registered NPO’s for the public to access, which increases the transparency and accountability of the organisation beyond its immediate role-plays.

An NPO stands for a Non-Profit Organisation. It is a Non Profit Company (NPC), Voluntary Association or Trust that is registered with the Government and established for a public purpose where the income and property are not distributed to its members or office bearers, except for reasonable compensation for services rendered, in terms of section 1 of the NPO Act 71 of 1997. Instead the income and property is used for “objects / purposes / missions” which are community based or non-governmental objectives.
