A number of housing associations extend the nature of their provision beyond the more traditional grant aided housing for rent or shared ownership – this is known as ‘non core’ housing activities.

The CIPFA online finance manual has been updated to include a new section that informs housing associations that are considering ‘non core’ housing activities of the issues that they will need to take into account.

The new section sets out the key considerations, including:

  • the business case
  • funding
  • risk management
  • taxation and regulatory considerations.
