Introduction

GCSE Business studies coursework Sangha Sports Part one Aims and objectives The aims of a business are when a specific company wants to achieve after the business has been set up and is making profit. The objectives are how the business will reach its aims and targets after the actual business has been set up. Businesses set up objectives so they can evaluate how their business is doing in their market, also they can see if they are making profits etc. The most important aim of my business will be to survive the first year because I have many competitors in this market. My second aim will be to make sure all my customers are happy with the products my business will offer them; I will ensure good quality goods. Before I start my business I will need to choose my businesses smart objectives, it is crucial for a business to have these SMART objectives.

I have concluded that the least appropriate type of ownership for my sports business is being a Sole trader mainly because my business will be a fairly large business and I will need help in getting the business started up e.g. I will need help with the starting costs of the business and getting it up and running, I wont be able to take as many holidays as I wanted etc. After considering the different business types I was left with a Partnership and a Private Limited Company. This is because both these types of businesses match my business requirements e.g. having more than one person working in the business, being easy and affordable to set up the business. Type of ownership I have chosen After looking at all the different types of ownership I have finally chosen a partnership for my sports business. I have chosen this type of ownership mainly because there is shared responsibility so I won't be making difficult decisions on my own and will have opinions of all the other partners in the business to expand. Also I have chosen this type of ownership because my partners can be specialized in areas of the business e.g. one of my partners can be specialized in working in the actual shop and selling goods on the other hand the other partner could be looking after financial problems and may not actually be in the shop retailing goods. Also if I was running the business alone I would be able to afford the business set up costs on my own. With the contribution of my partners I can get the business up and running. For my final conclusion about my type of ownership I researched all the types of ownership and found a partnership the most convenient. Other types of ownership I looked at all the different types of ownership carefully and considered many factors both positive and negative when choosing my business ownership. ...read more.
