Can a non-profit organization with federal tax exempt under section 501(c) form a child commercial company? Of course, the small business is not the main theme of the mother company, just a consequence.
For example, a university (which is no-profit incorporation) can establish child companies to commercialize its patents, how?
My question is mainly about charity organizations. Can they run a commercial business without registering a separate company?
I do not mean NOT-PAYING taxes. Definitely, the child company will tax on commercial revenue, but can be hosted under supervision of a non-profit incorporation?
