The the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals has released the Co-op builder, a free, online tool that farmer groups can use to register their business as a co-operative.

The Co-op Builder is an online template for the legal documents required to set up a co-operative in Australia. It has been developed by the peak body for co-operatives, the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals (BCCM) for the Farm Co-operatives and Collaboration Pilot Program (Farming Together), a federally funded, two-year pilot to enhance the expertise available to farmers wanting to establish agricultural co-operatives.” More information here
