Sole Trader A sole trader is a small business which is usually run by one person who employs 1-5 other people. A sole trader is a person who is the only owner of a business which is not a partnership or a company. These businesses usually don't make a lot of profit but there are a lot of them. The sole trader can make a lot of changes to the business easily and quickly because they are the only person at the top and there are few people to convince. An example is a local shop or takeaway. It is the simplest way to run a business.

GREENWAY'S TYPE OF OWNERSHIP As the name suggests, a sole trader is a business owned and runs by one person, although it is quite likely that others will be employed to assist the day-to-day business. Our development will be in two parts. The first part will be about the advantages and the second part about the disadvantages. After working for a local firm in Manchester and saving some money during ten years, Tom decided to set up his own business and this is how GREENWAY'S ESTATE AGENTS was born. In fact a sole trader business is very easy to set up because there are no formal procedures to follow to open a shop and that means there is not lot of paperwork involve in this type of ownership. GREENWAY'S ESTATE AGENTS is a service base business, and among those services the main activities are the renting (mainly for the students) and the selling of houses. In fact one the main advantages of GREENWAY'S ESTATE AGENTS is the good personal service that Tom gives to his customers. For instance if someone wants to buy, sell or rent a house, and he phones and makes an appointment with GREENWAY'S ESTATE AGENTS, Tom himself goes to the customer to discuss about the terms of the contract and sometimes he guides the customer who needs some help about the mortgages or the solicitors and many more.

REPORT TO: Business Studies Department FROM: Bradley Jones DATE: 16/04/2008 SUBJECT: Setting up my own business This report is about setting up my own business in Werrington. I will be demonstrating my business studies knowledge throughout and applying this to setting up my Café business, "Brad's Café". I will collect research and show how this affects the development of a marketing strategy for my business. Section 1 - Introduction to my business .1 Type of business I would like to set up a café. This would be a successful business because it would give people of all ages a place to hang out relax, and sip a nice cup of coffee. It would also be successful because there is no immediate competition in the area, only in nearby towns such as Hanley or Bucknall. A final reason my business would be successful is because I would not only serve tea, coffee and hot chocolate. I would also have a selection of sandwiches, snacks such as chips, jacket potatoes and desserts such as dairy ice cream, tempting donuts or even delicious Belgian waffles. My business would help to support the local community because it would give them somewhere to sit in peace. It would also be a place where people could meet friends and catch up with old times or just have a random chat as good friends do. Another thing that I would do to help the community is give it disabled access and large
IBm and the third Reich
IBM and the Third Reich Many people believe that the information age was born Silicone valley, but this is a false statement. The information age was born in Nazi Germany in 1933 by the American company IBM. IBM and the Third Reich had been business partners from 1933 till the end of the war. It was IBM job to supply the Nazis with census machines and punch card technology, which was used to organize and process information in a quick and efficient manner. These machines and technology were mainly used in Hitler's concentration camps for quick way to classify prisoners and identify the average amount of work one could get out of a prisoner before they were executed. IBM was acting in an unethical manner, since there is evidence that IBM officials were fully aware of what was being done with their machines and continued to allow it. Throughout the 1930's and 40's there had been headline after headline in the New York Times and other prominent news papers of a possible genocide. For example in the New York Times on June 21, 1938 "Goebbels warns Jews must leave", again in the New York Times on April 22 1941 "Census of all Jews planned in France", and finally in the New York Times on June 30, 1942 "1,000,000 Jews slain by Nazis, report says.".

Customer Services 2.
Unit 2 Business Assignment - Customer Services Customer services are an essential key to any successful business, without them a company would perish and fail within a year. Consumers of products have extremely high expectations of the companies they purchase from and if this is not supplied in the exact way they want it then the customer will most likely go to another business that will give them great customer service. Most customers nowadays expect * Friendly service * Helpful staff * Aesthetically pleasing establishments * Facilities to suit their needs * Regular customers will expect to be remembered for their loyalty * Easy and pleasant service if the customer is not satisfied Banks are a great example of different types of customer service. They use diverse methods of attracting and retaining their existing and new clients. The banks that I think possess the potential of this quality are; Nationwide - This bank has put its time and effort into higher interest rates to attract new business and free withdrawals from cash machines abroad. Natwest - Insist that they have stopped routing all their calls abroad to call centres and that now all calls are directed straight through to the branch. HSBC - Following customer complaints about queues in branches at busy times, it now has its own radio station playing music and providing current announcements
