PESA is incorporated under Western Australian legislation, operating under the set of rules passed at the 2004 AGM in Melbourne, revised in 2006, and posted on our website.
Incorporation of an association means that it becomes a legal entity, separate from the members, so that individual members and officers are afforded a degree of liability protection for debts and liabilities of the association.
Since incorporation, the society applied for and was awarded tax-exempt status; so all our income is now net of any tax. Organisations may be exempt from paying income tax if they fit within certain categories, including: community service organisations, cultural organisations, friendly societies, resource development organisations, and particularly in our case, educational organisations.
