A range of information is held on the register about each charitable trust board. This includes a number of addresses — registered office, address for communication, and email addresses.
Registered office address
You’re legally required to tell us, within a month, when your registered office address changes.
The registered office address must be a physical address in New Zealand, that is, it can't be a P.O. Box, Private Bag or DX, or a virtual office (mail or message collection point).
If the registered office address is that of a chartered accountant or lawyer, or the offices of any other person, then full details are required — for example, the name of the firm, including details of the location.
Address for communication
We’ll also need a current ‘address for communication’. While not mandatory, this allows us to contact you easily when we need to.
The address for communication can be either a postal address (for example, a PO Box) or a residential address.
