The paper "Small Business Finances" is an outstanding example of a business assignment. Small businesses require money to operate. As long as you are careful with your spending there is no need to keep track of business costs. If money needs to be spent you have to spend it. Do you agree? The answer, No. this is because there is a possibility that some costs can be neglected and it can be difficult to plan for costs in an accurate manner based on the current understanding of costs.

The owner is considering increasing the selling price of his 3-D glasses.
How many units would need to be sold to allow his business to break-even if the price was raised to £ 30? Let the selling price = x BEP =834, Fixed Cost=£ 15000, Unit cost price=£ 30 15000/(x-30) =834; 15000=834x-25020 40020= 834x X= £ 47.98 Is there a reason why the owner might not raise the price of the 3-D glasses? There is no reason because the cost of a unit product has risen which will result in a change in break-even point if the cost is not raised.
