Foundations - incorporation


The foundation is an NGO which can be constituted at the initiative of one or more individual or legal entities, who allocate an asset that contributes to the realization of activities of general interest or in the interest of a certain community.

An initial asset of the foundation is the equivalent of one hundred (100) minimum gross salaries per economy. Exceptions are foundations which aim at fundraising operations, funds which will be made available to other associations and foundations; in this case the initial assets value must be at least the equivalent of 20 minimum gross salaries per economy.

After acquiring legal personality, the initial cash asset may be transferred into the current account, from which it will be used to make payments on behalf of the association and its purpose.

Obtaining the court decision for registration in the Registry of Associations and Foundations, takes up to 21 days, however there are several procedures to be followed before it becomes a final decision, thus the deadline extends to 45 days (working days).
