The development of law in the area of non-profit organizations is lagging behind social developments, which always causes tension. It is important to include the tax authorities in these developments in order to avoid problems as much as possible. In some cases, barriers need to be removed before the government will agree to new legal developments; in these cases, there is little else one can do than initiate proceedings.
