The company might even end up in a situation where it can't pay for its expenses no more and this would lead the business to shut down. If Sainsbury do not control its cost and budget properly then this would mean that the company would purchase too much stock and the stock be held in the stockroom. This would then mean that the value of the stock would decrease. As a result this would increase the cost of the company expenses. Also this would mean that the company would be wasting money in a non beneficial area so if the company wanted to use the money in another area it wouldn't be able. Then again, if Sainsbury do not manage its costs and budget properly then this would mean that the company would not be collecting the money owed back in time to pay for their expenses and stock.

So therefore they will lose money on those clothes. Another problem which can arise is that the company the company may not keep track of they debtors and this means that the debtors are not paying on time. So therefore they might find it difficult to pay it creditors and might even need to borrow some money to purchase stock and the company will make a loss as they would have to pay an interest on the money borrowed. ?? ?? ?? ??
