Structuring Your Operations in India
In the fast-changing world of NPO regulation, your operational structure may make a lot of difference, in terms of time, money and operational flexibility. Just as a bamboo grows up quickly, can be used in myriad ways, bends and flows with the wind and water, so too might your organisation.
If your operations involve income generation, fund-raising, as well as implementation on the ground, you will need to think carefully about how your organisation is placed. You will want to make sure that you are able to take advantage of what the regulations offer you – without violating their letter or spirit.
Changes in Income Tax and regulation of Foreign Contribution over the last couple of years have made this a complex issue. Think carefully and get good, ethical advice before you cast your organisation in Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC)!
