Commercial activities & trading
Manage your organisational risks by properly documenting your relationships with customers, suppliers and other third parties
Whether your contractual dealings are straightforward or more complex, what’s important is to ensure that your obligations and financial commitments are clearly defined.
In an effort to diversify funding streams some charities rely on commercial activities to generate funds. However, commercial activity is tightly regulated and you’ll need to ensure that you operate within the rules and classify your trading activities accordingly.
We advise on:
- formation and governance of trading companies
- formation of Community Interest Companies
- solvency and funding of trading activity
- directors' and officers' duties
- trading terms
- property issues
- procurement of technology
- e-commerce activities
