The revenue generated by Remploy sales does not take account of the grant in aid provided by sponsoring Government Departments that is required to support operations running at a loss.

This grant in aid information is not available broken down by factory, but is included in the summary table for annual performance.

The available information is in the following tables.

(1) Sales not individually identified.

Notes:

1. Remploy does not have records of sales by site prior to 2003-04, when its central accounting system was introduced.

2. The textiles and furniture businesses are integrated businesses where materials are moved from site to site for processing and, therefore, for these factories sales are not ascribed to individual sites. Remploy have advised that in many cases high sales income is accompanied by high material costs. Therefore sales is not a good guide to the quality of the work on a site or to the profitability of that site.
