Many charities carry out trading to generate income for their charity. We understand that you need to manage trading in such a way as to maximise income for your charity but with minimal risk. Whether that is trading which directly advances the charitable objects or non-primary purpose trading, we can help you to assess how such trading could be carried out and whether a separate trading company should be set up.
We can also support you to manage the charity’s relationship with its trading subsidiary, including in relation to property, tax and IP, to ensure compliance with charity law and Charity Commission recommended best practice.
We also advise charities on their additional operations, including fundraising and data protection issues, grant-making, general commercial contracts and procurement.
