Non re-registered NGOs, that did not carry out activities in 2020, must publish a non-activity declaration through a business publication or Internet by 30 June 2021. The declaration can be published on the website of the respective NGO as well.
In case where a non-activity declaration for 2019 has been announced and if no activity has been carried out during 2020, companies and NGOs will not submit a new declaration this year.
