Johannesburg - The deadline for non-profit organisations (NPOs) to submit annual reports to the department of social development has been extended, the department said on Monday.

"The department is calling on all NPOs that were registered with the department between 1997 and 2012, and have not previously submitted their annual reports to the department as required by the NPO Act (Act No.71 of 1997), to submit their annual reports... by 31 March in order to avoid being deregistered," spokesperson Lumka Oliphant said.

In January, 64 476 NPOs were registered with the NPO directorate in the department of social development.

"Of these, 36 428 had been deregistered for failure to comply with the NPO Act," Oliphant said.

The NPOs were deregistered between August and December for failing to submit annual reports.

In January Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini met the ministerial task team on NPOs to discuss administrative matters relating to the NPO sector, the registration status of NPOs, and also reach agreement on the way forward.

"The meeting in January decided that the deregistered NPOs will be reinstated and reflected as registered on the NPO database, while efforts would be made to assist them to achieve compliance and correct their registration status within six months," Oliphant said.

"It was also agreed that NPOs which were not deregistered but were non-compliant would be given an opportunity to submit their annual reports."
