What is it about?
It is curious that New Zealand provided the ability for not-for-profit entities to incorporate from at least 1908, but England and Wales (its coloniser) only did this 100 years later. We analyse why this might have occurred.
Why is it important?
Understanding why not-for-profit entities need to incorporate is important and we discuss this in full. Further, the different emphases on regulation (England and Wales) over structure (New Zealand) has had different outcomes as we show.
