The end payslip should look like this: Interview with the Owner of the business: - - How long has this business been established? It started off at our home over 20 years ago when me and my brother starting selling videos. - What is involved in running your business? I buy the videos from various warehouses from east London, which are stored in my stores the videos go directly to my customers who have booked them in advance. If any videos are not rented out within a certain time limit we refund them. If the delivery is huge we have to use transport companies to deliver the goods, but if the deliveries are small or reasonable we use our own van, which is operated by one of the store workers. - How do you record your finances, what is involved and how long does it take? Once the goods are rented out we keep invoices, which are then filed. At the end of each month I personally add up the bills and calculate the sales, decrease/increase in stock levels, profit/loss, monthly expenses and VAT. This process takes up the whole day as the sums are lengthy and take up a lot of time. At the end of the year income tax is calculated referring to the profit or loss made throughout the twelve months. ...read more.


a smaller type store who would more often than not leave the transfer of data on to a spreadsheet due to there not being enough data to permit doing so. Doing my spreadsheet over a year rather than a month would have given the user a much better idea of how their business is doing. Only doing a month restricts their knowledge of the store and a yearly record would enhance this view and allow them to make future decisions under better judgement. I believe that I could have improved the discount aspect of my spreadsheet, as it is slightly out of sync with the rest of my work. The main detail for that particular worksheet was the names of the customers but again I could not have added such depth with the time allowed. If I were to do this project again, I would perhaps do a different type of store to allow me and the user to use a variety of new and different functions, as well as get a better outlook on how the productivity of sales varies with different types of stores. Overall, I have found this project a very interesting and intriguing one and am proud to say that I met the user's needs and thus met the main target set out at the start of the work.
