How Modern Bartering Works

LTG is a Trade Group whose members can trade with each other, doing “Modern Bartering”.

Unlike old fashioned bartering, where you provide products or services to someone else, and they must reciprocate (providing you something in return), in “Modern Bartering”, members receive “Trade Dollars”, which members can spend with other members in a trade group.

But it’s better than that! Members can actually trade with over 50,000 members of other trade groups that have an alliance with LTG. These other trade groups are around the USA and beyond.

If you haven’t heard of modern bartering in trade groups, you are not alone. Trade groups have been around for decades and it’s a growing industry.

LTG does many things to help its members. From helping to introduce members to each other, to facilitating trades both locally and beyond, to providing its members with the necessary paperwork and taking care of government requirements.

It’s a way to obtain new business. It’s a way to meet more business people, discover new opportunities, and have some new enjoyment.

Modern Bartering Can Be FUN!!

Why Barter?

Bringing You a Better Life Through Barter

The most important challenge facing your business today and in the future is to maintain a competitive edge. This means rethinking the standard way of doing business. It also means exploring new sources of revenue.

Conserves cash

That’s right. Every time you complete a trade transaction, you did not have to pay cash out of your pocket for that item. Cash is the life of a business and without a positive cash flow, a business cannot survive. So by bartering, you can conserve cash for the items you cannot trade for.

Gets rid of surplus

Plenty of companies have surplus lying around that they cannot liquidate. This is stale merchandise that is only COSTING the company money. It is costing money in taking up space that could be used for sellable items. Things that won’t move in the cash world have every chance of moving in the trade world. So now you can get rid of the things you don’t need, by trading them for the things you do need.

Lowers downtime and unused capacity

When a hotel room sits empty, it isn’t making anyone money (and in some cases is actually losing the company money!) With barter and trade, a company can fill the rooms with clients, and create trade dollars that can be used to purchase more needed items, making it a double win situation for the business.

Creates more customers

What someone may not be willing to pay cash for, they may be willing to trade for. Many companies utilize leverage in creating trade dollars, therefore the $1 they spent, did not cost them $1 to create, so they are leveraging their time and resources into larger amounts, that benefit them better in the long run.

Creates cash sales and transactions

Like in the example of the hotel, though they may pay for the room with trade, the room service, the valet and the numerous others amenities they use in the hotel they pay cash for, which is bringing more cash into the business than would not have originally been there than if the room sat empty. These cash transactions of course help with the cash flow of the business and in turn help the business survive.

Purchasing Power

All of us will agree that cash is no more than a means to an end. When it comes to making your purchases, the form of payment is unimportant. Using your goods and/or services is an excellent way to make the purchases you and your business need in both good times and bad.


Local Trade Group brings the benefits of business to business barter to local businesses that your business will profit from. 


With Local Trade Group, you are connected to the largest barter marketplace in the world. With over 150 exchanges, 40,000 plus members and more than $400 million in goods and services available, your business is sure to profit locally and around the world.

How Does Local Trade Group Work?

LTG increases profits by utilizing excess capacity to generate incremental business, reduce cash expenditures and fund unbudgeted expansion. This is accomplished without making any changes in how you do business. All you will do is add an additional form of payment.

How does this affect my taxes?

One of the most important considerations about barter is that the IRS deems barter transactions to be taxable events. The fair market value of products or services you receive via barter must be reported as income to the IRS. This may result in income, self-employment, or excise tax liability, as well as capital gains or losses. If you make transactions via a barter exchange, you should receive a Form 1099-B from the exchange that details your barter activity.
