Subsidiary Companies

The University has a number of wholly-owned companies which run a variety of activities that, if carried out by the University itself, would fall outside the charitable exemption for corporation tax.

These companies participate in activities which either:

  • Are not part of the University's main purpose, or
  • May give rise to a tax liability in the University, or
  • Require a specialist structure.

If you are considering an activity which may require setting up a subsidiary company, the following documents include guidance on the procedures that need to be followed.
