    It is a common practice that the number of valid members of non-governmental organizations, which have been registered for a long time, is impossible to determine: their records were not kept, statements on entrance and exit were not always signed, contact with some members was simply lost and somebody is not already alive. Provisions of charters of the organizations, which were registered before 2013 and charters of which were not amended, have almost always not complied with the relevant legislation. We are taking even such drafts.

Registration of changes in a charter of a non-governmental organization since 2013

Registration of amendments to the Charter of a non-governmental organization 


Let’s imagine a theoretical situation: You need to introduce changes to your NGO’s Charter.

What is to be done first? What legal framework to be addressed? How do you know that there is any need in changes?


We’ll explain everything step by step.


The most frequent cases, which require to amend the Charter, cover the change of members, founding members, etc. Also, we have often been faced with the need to submit new data on the business location or the organization’s contacts.


Like any other bureaucratic procedure in our country, it requires maximum attention and in-depth knowledge of law. Why, you may ask? The answer is simple - any slightest mistake in documents will result in refusal And every refusal means time and nerves wasted.


We always emphasize that the organizations, which haven’t yet brought their Charters in line with the law, should pay particular attention to this issue, as it is necessary to do as soon as possible. The organization cannot function without the Charter in force.


Get our legal support and assistance 

We have extensive experience in dealing with such issues. Your organization is not the first, and not the last, contacting our company for such services. And this the best testimony of our commitment, professionalism and promptness.


One of the potential perks you get when applying for our company’s services is the registration of changes with just one (1) business day! And as we all know - time is money! We are well aware that sometimes this paperwork may catch you off guard. And it should be done right now, if not the day before yesterday.


In such emergency situations, it is almost impossible to solve any issues, involving the state authorities, without legal assistance. The most important thing in this situation is that we will do all the work not only quickly, but also in accordance with the law.


Visit our website and find our regular clients’ feedback, learn more about cases from our experience described by our lawyers, as well as the permits received in the process of work. The same applies to such procedure as the registration of changes.


Our company works as a single well-set mechanism, so that you are pleased with results and can devote all your time and attention to doing business, rather than examining laws and regulations that won’t ever come in handy for you.
