The committee is responsible for ensuring the BDA's financial and strategic wellbeing in the present and into the future. It monitors current performance, recommends a budget to BDA Management Committee (including membership fees) for approval, examines yearly accounts, and identifies areas of financial weakness.

It has developed a Strategic Plan that sets out the aims and objectives for the BDA from December 2017 for the forthcoming 2 to 5 years.

BDA Strategic Plan - Under review

BDA Limited is a company limited by guarantee. It operates as a non profit organisation and there are no shareholders to whom a dividend could be due. Any surplus made is retained and go into Members' Funds (Reserves). BDA's policy is to maintain a level of reserves sufficient to protect the Association through any period of loss or losses. By prudent build up of reserves over the past few years, the BDA remains financially secure and able to fully maintain all its activities. However the finance committee continues to look at performance and carries out planning to break even.
