Membership Organizations

Membership OrganizationsProfessional trade and membership organizations have particularly complicated concerns related to chapter reporting and membership retention, as well as dealing with the unique issues of unrelated business income such as advertising and sponsorships increase. When clients provide administrative assistance to their local chapters, or act as brokers in insurance programs created for the benefit of their members, it can create added layers of complexity to their accounting responsibilities and tax obligations. We advise member organizations on all these issues, as well as credit card and mailing list agreements, royalty income arrangements, investment income subject to the unrelated business income tax and exemption-threatening activities, among others.
