Let us look at the benefits of NGO Registration.
Several Tax Exemption
NGO's are generally exempted from several central and state taxes in India. If you are involved in any social activities which are carrying under NGO registration, then you will be leaved from the high percentage of corporate tax. But as per the GST Act, some of the services specified in the GST act are liable to pay GST.
Tax Exemption From Donations
After incorporating an NGO, you can apply for donation from the national and international level. But if you are not registered NGO, then you will not be eligible for the said exemption. You can also get individual donations if you are registered because you will have to give them an 80G certificate for their contribution.
Protecting Personal Liability
Another significant benefit of incorporating NGO is that you can protect members of your organisation from personal liabilities. Generally, employees, officers and board members enjoy the benefit of corporate debts and lawsuits; creditors can only claim your NGO's assets, not your personal assets.
As nature and rule, an NGO is separate from its governing body and it has a different legal existence. Means any circumstance arises on members or governing body of the NGO will not end the organisational Eternity. This feature of an NGO makes donors appreciate to donate.
With incorporating an NGO, you will need to perform the formalized role with the job description on a regular basis. As doing and running an NGO itself as a great work, it will welcome more people to work with you in hand to hand.
No Salary Payment
NGO's usually do not pay salary to its members. As it is a voluntary based work, there's no need to pay salary to the members. Moreover each volunteer has different expertise, skills and resources which help very much to smooth running the NGO activity.
