Statutes and articles of association in compliance with non-profit law

The tax code contains a model statute, the consideration of which in the articles of association or partnership agreement of NPOs is checked by the financial administration. The formulation of the charitable, benevolent or ecclesiastical purposes pursued and the implementation of the purposes pursued are particularly decisive.

However, some organizations find it difficult to reconcile the goals of their own organization with the rigid requirements of the model statutes. The question often arises as to whether the chosen charitable purpose also includes all of the organization's planned activities. In addition, the tax authorities sometimes have comments and special questions.
