· The references, bibliography and footnotes (provided footnotes only include references) are NOT included in the word count.
· There is no penalty for exceeding the word count but the marker WILL stop reading once the word limit has been reached and nothing further will be taken into account in the allocation of marks. Students will be penalised for a failure to be concise and for failing to conclude their work appropriately.
· The word count needs to be clearly and correctly stated on the title page of the assignment. Incorrectly understating the word count constitutes an assessment offence and may result in further action.

Referral Assignment 2014/15 WORD LIMIT: 2000 words
Barbara, Helen and Maureen have been working together for 18 months, running a business in England, making and selling celebration cakes and luxury desserts. They call the business ‘Sweet Pleasures’.
Between them they have been sharing the costs of buying materials, equipment, ingredients and paying the general running costs. They have been splitting the net profits equally (after paying running costs for the business) for the past 18 months. They have no written agreement setting out the terms of their business arrangements.
The business is doing well and recently they have been offered a 12 month contract to supply a variety of their luxury desserts to a very popular delicatessen’s shop. With the expansion of their business they have decided that it would be a good idea to investigate the possibility of formalising their business arrangements and are thinking of forming a private limited company as they have been told this would be a suitable business arrangement for them.

Describe the type of business organisation Barbara, Helen and Maureen currently operate under. What are the advantages and disadvantages of continuing to trade as they do at present?
Task 2

Task 3

Task 4
If they form a private limited company Barbara, Helen and Maureen want to raise additional capital to support their business expansion by issuing more shares or by taking out a bank loan. Explain what implications each method of raising further capital might have upon the running of their business?
Task 5

You can discuss such matters as to whether you found enough information in those materials and whether you found them easy or difficult to understand. If this is a resit coursework you may like reflect upon what you have done differently in this coursework as compared to what you did in the first coursework.
