Computer Society loses charity status

The New Zealand Computer Society has lost its charity status and with it the right to considerable tax exemptions for both the organisation and its donors.

But the NZCS chief executive Paul Matthews says the Society is appealing the decision made by the Charities Commission in March and has lodged an application for appeal with the High Court.

According to a decision by the Commission, NZCS’s charity status was revoked earlier this year. It followed nine months of detailed submissions and counter submissions as the Society fought to keep its charity status. However, the Commission was unmoved and delisted the Society as a charity on 18 March.

NZCS is one New Zealand’s oldest ICT organisations, and was first registered on 6 October 1960 (it plans to celebrate its 50th anniversary later this year). However under the Charities Act 2005 it was required to apply for status as a registered charity, which it achieved in January 2009.
