Member-Based Organisations and Peak Bodies

Saward Dawson provides a range of service to many member-based organisations and peak bodies across Australia.

We understand each that each organisation is different and member organisations activities vary beyond membership fees to include training, accreditation, advocacy, publications, conferences and events, research and government grant funded programs.


Our taxation services team can advise on the ability of a peak body or membership based organisation to obtain charity status and tax exemption. Many member based organisations are not tax exempt and we prepare taxation calculations and returns based on the principle of mutuality.


Our audits are designed to provide your board with confidence over the accuracy of the annual financial report, the adequacy of your internal controls and advice in relation to meeting your governance obligations. We undertake fully electronic audits embracing advanced data interrogation techniques that enable to use our expertise in the interpretation of variances, exceptions and matters requiring skill and judgement.

Our clients include organisations registered under the Fair Work Act.


Our business consulting services include outsourced CFO arrangements on a temporary or ongoing basis. We also have specialist systems advice and improvement to assist in your selection and implementation of IT systems to drive efficiencies and quality information and reporting.

We would be pleased to talk to you about how our services can benefit your organisation.
