Incorporated associations have a legal structure set up under a state or territory law, that is usually not-for-profit.

Generally, incorporated associations must have a minimum number of members, be managed by a committee of management that meets at least once a year at an annual general meeting (AGM), have a set of rules and operate in the state or territory it is incorporated in.

Charities that are incorporated associations may have obligations to state or territory government regulators, such as providing annual reports or keeping financial records.
