If trading is a part of your fundraising strategy – or you’d like to explore it as an option – we can help you make your venture a success, while staying on the right side of charity law and HMRC.
Charity trading can be an excellent way to generate income, but if it’s not related to your primary purpose, you may need to think about a trading subsidiary. A trading subsidiary could also prove to be the best way to manage the risk and tax considerations if you’re branching into a new activity or partnership.
With our experience in helping charities to structure and manage their trading activity, we can take you through the options to decide on the best approach for your operations. And if you have an established trading subsidiary, we can work with you to assess if you need to review any aspect of your operations in light of the Charity Commission’s latest guidance - “Charities with a connection to a non-charity”.
