Pending cancellation of incorporated associations

Skip listen and sharing tools

An incorporated association may have its registration cancelled:

  • if it is not operating
  • if it is voluntarily wound up
  • by Certificate of the Registrar.

If an association is listed in the documents on this page, that does not mean that the association has been cancelled. To check the registration status of an association, view Search for an incorporated association.

An association listed for cancellation under Not operating and Voluntary will also be in lists published in gazettes. To access a copy, visit Victoria Government Gazette website.

Not operating

If the Registrar of Incorporated Associations believes an association is not operating, we send a request to show cause why it should not be cancelled.

Certificate of Registrar

The Registrar of Incorporated Associations issues a notice to some associations, if there are grounds under the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012 to wind up the association on the Registrar's certificate.
