in Argos they are selling for �230 so I am saving a lot of money I need 2 of these, sponges for a pack of ten cost �5, car shampoo is �1.29 and on the bottle it says you can wash up to 300 car washes. As you can see the figures are giving are accurate so therefore my business results (outcome) is likely to be true and that I make a profit, survive etc so therefore I reached my aims and objectives. I could of have made mistakes if I had just entered the figures so I used formulas to make sure that I entered in correct data (look below) January February March April Opening balance 5500 =SUM(B20) =SUM(C20) =SUM(D20) Receipts Sales 2000 2800 3500 3750 Payments Rent 735 735 735 735 Electricity & Gas 50 60 75 75 Wages 250 250 250 250 Advertising 1000 1500 1000 200 Insurance 92 92 92 92 Loan/family 750 750 500 250 Equipment 750 100 150 100 Sub total =SUM(B10:B16) =SUM(C10:C16) =SUM(D10:D16) =SUM(E10:E16) Closing balance =SUM(B4+B7-B18) =SUM(C4+C7-C18) =SUM(D4+D7-D18) =SUM(E4+E7-E18) May June July August September =SUM(E20) =SUM(F20) =SUM(G20) =SUM(H20) =SUM(I20) 4000 4500 4750 4700 3000 735 735 735 735 735 200 200 200 200 150 250 500 500 500 500 750 1000 1000 250 250 100 100 100 100 100 750 750 750 750 750 250 500 200 100 125 =SUM(F10:F16) =SUM(G10:G16) =SUM(H10:H16) =SUM(I10:I16) =SUM(J10:J16) =SUM(F4+F7-F18) =SUM(G4+G7-G18) =SUM(H4+H7-H18) =SUM(I4+I7-I18) =SUM(J4+J7-J18) October November December =SUM(J20) =SUM(K20) =SUM(L20) 2500 2250 1750 735 735 735 120 100 100 500 250 250 250 0 0 100 100 100 400 400 400 100 100 100 =SUM(K10:K16) =SUM(L10:L16) =SUM(M10:M16) =SUM(K4+K7-K18) =SUM(L4+L7-L18) =SUM(M4+M7-M18) As you can see the formulas look complicated put it helps me because now the cash flow is correct.

Insurance All these prices add up to �1,685.00 Variable costs I worked out at 0.75p per wash these were pay for the equipment etc. I believe all the data is accurate. Weaknesses The number one weakness is that this is quite a lot of cars to wash for a business that is just opening 667 cars a month that is a lot of work that has to be done I mean that around nearly 30 a day car washes but if a few cars come in for Gill's A1 valet service then the number will drop must people won't have the full valet service because it is expensive most people will have the normal �3.50 car wash. Another major is weakness what happens if no turns up into the business? I mean if 667 people don't turn up to the business what will I do will the business become shut, if I can't give with expenses money going out what will I do. I hope that this wouldn't happen but if it did I would try and get the local newspaper to the a report on my business this way I could have a good public relation with the press, this will increase customer awareness so new potential customers. I could also cut costs i.e. lose a employee to save money buy less equipment etc. Evaluation One of the things I could do is I could ask someone who currently owns a car wash maybe someone with experience in this sector or maybe a business advisor to talk to and ask what a realistic target would be to opening a new business (car wash) from each discussion if I find out that my cost are to high then I could cut back on equipment an employee or potential I could move location and find cheaper rent etc. Now I will move onto section D and give detail analysis of how software could help my business. ?? ?? ?? ??
