Does it really matter to getting more bikes on the road, probably not.
But anyway we’re incorporated now which allow us to do a number of things
Act as an Organisation – to get a bank account, sign a lease or register trailer as HBK we need to be incorporated.
Tax Deductible – once incorporated we can apply to ATO to be a charitable organisation and then donations can be made tax deductible
To be able to apply for any other grants we’ll need to be incorporated as govt. will only provide funds to incorporated bodies. We’ve really appreciated the help from Bike Tas. but this will allow us to apply in our own right.
