Trading arms

Develop trading activities and earn income that can help meet your charitable aims

With austerity and funding cuts that will continue for years to come more and more charities are considering whether to set up a trading arm (subsidiary) to become more sustainable and reduce reliance on ever decreasing grant funding.

A trading arm can be helpful in numerous ways, for example:

  • Reducing the risk to your charitable resources
  • Trading without restrictions such as primary purpose
  • Enabling you to maximise trading opportunities
  • Generate unrestricted income to further your charitable objectives.

We can help you with every aspect of setting up a trading subsidiary and guide you through the most appropriate option for your specific needs and circumstances.
