TASK 1 AIM: To select four different types of ownership and investigate their aim and objectives. INTRODUCTION: All businesses exist for a purpose. In other words, they all do something and have a reason for doing it. They may produce goods or supply goods, or offer the customer a service or the business may also be doing both. (Google) In my assignment I will choose four businesses from different ownerships and will write about what scale they belong in as well as the businesses sizes.

The size depends on the business number of employees as well as how large the organisation is. ...read more.

Activities. Rock edge sells all types of cloths e.g. jeans, cardigans, polo shirts. Purposes. I think the main goal of this company is to expand to other localities and then become a national company. Ownership. The type of ownership they are is a partnership because they have two people handling the business. Size and Scale.
