About Us

Approved trades have a strong board that have been instrumental in implementing standards such as Fenestration Part L and Electrical standard part P.

Approved trades have made a conscious decision to simply invest in promoting our members while providing the tools to trade in a more efficient ways. Approved trades have a range of bespoke benefits that help you trade with an advantage while reducing your costs.

Our benefits range from legal advice to replacement van cover and are all covered in a low annual fee.

Our partners ensure members cover their low annual fee on a day to day basis via way of discounted service such as free debt recovery and 10% guaranteed insurance service.

Approved Trades do not lobby; as a consensus of members indicated previous costly organisations in their opinion do nothing to help their business. Once a member you will operate a licence as one of a maximum three trade specific company’s in that postcode.

Membership is not automatic and vetting will take up to 10 working days depending on reference response times. Once approved members can actively promote membership and the organisation will support you in tendering for new contracts whether commercial or domestic via our partners and direct marketing campaigns. We assist our members with a whole range of services from insurance backed guarantees, consumer finance and tax and VAT inspection cover. You can also check out some of the other benefits on the benefits page.
