The Register of Nonprofit Organisations (NPOs) is a
voluntary REGISTRATION  facility
that enhances the credibility of the registered NPO as it reports to a public
office. The NPO Directorate, as a public office, holds information about
registered NPOs for the public to access. This thus, increases the transparency
and accountability of the organisation beyond its immediate role-plays. This
accountability and transparency improves the governance of an organisation as
it is also expected that a registered NPO must comply with the requirements of
the NPO Act. The NPO registration status is also a FUNDING requirement for most
donor and funding agencies. The national NPO registration facility therefore
brings NPOs into a public system that allows for information about the sector
to be gathered and made publicly available which in many ways increases the
confidence of the public in the nonprofit sector.  

An NPO is defined, in terms of section 1 of the NPO
Act, as a trust, company or other association of persons established for a
public purpose and of which its income and property are not distributable to
its members or office bearers except as reasonable compensation for services
rendered. Nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) and community based
organisations (CBOs) are collectively known as nonprofit organisations (NPOs).
In some instance, NPOs are also referred to as Civil Society Organisations
(CSO).
