Corporate Governance Services

Jenkins Legal and Advisory have extensive experience in corporate governance and corporate secretarial services. We can assist your private or not-for-profit company with any of its legal, corporate governance or compliance requirements and policies in order to have the most effective governance framework in place in your organisation.

Corporate Governance Services we can provide include:

  • Amendments to the constitution and members’ agreements

  • Preparation and review of board charters and committee terms of reference

  • Advice on board policies and procedures including meeting procedures and documentation to ensure efficient and effective communication, controls and decision-making

  • Preparation and review of board and committee work plans and calendars

  • Structuring and joint venturing advice

  • Internal audit and risk management advice

  • Advice on charity status and other tax concessions

  • Legal and strategic advice on commercial transactions, projects and PPPs

We can also assist (or take the lead) in the establishment of new NFP entities and ACNC registration.  The initial setup of an NFP is important due to the complex legislative issues surrounding NFP’s. It is imperative that an NFP is established with the right legal structure for maximum administrative efficiency, control, asset protection and tax effectiveness.

All the above will increase the performance of your company through an optimal organisational environment individualised to your needs.
