[3 marks] Insurance of van Cost of cleaning materials Advertising the cleaning service Fixed cost Variable cost 1 (b) Using the formula below, calculate how many jobs Quality Clean needs to complete per week in order to break even. [3 marks] Correct answer: 15 (jobs per week) 15(1) o/f. = 120 (1) ( 24 16)/ 8 (1) 3 of 14

4 1 (c) Using Item A, explain how calculating break even might help Joanne to plan for the future of the business. [5 marks] Relevant answers might include the following: AO1/Level 1 Responses might demonstrate the following knowledge: allows a business to make decisions about changing costs or revenues helps with pricing decisions awareness of the effects that changes in costs and revenues have on break even allows a business to use what if analysis which will help with decision making. AO2/Level 2 Context can be achieved by referring to: the business its figures Its competition Its margin of safety or a combination of the above L2 3 marks shows awareness of the type of business and/or the equipment Joanne would need. L2 4 marks reference to the prices/cost figures of the business L3 5 marks makes use of competition or margin of safety for example show Joanne that if her projections are correct of 60 jobs per week she will easily break even (15 jobs) although she is charging less ( 24) than her competitors ( 25 26), she still breaks even allows her to use what if analysis to see what the change would be if she increased her prices to that of competitors. For example 24 to Explains how calculating break even might help Joanne to plan for the future of the business. 5 3 AO2 1 States reason(s)/demonstrates knowledge of why a business would calculate break even. 0 No valid response AO1 4 of 14

5 1 (d) Joanne s main competitors pay their cleaners a higher wage. If Joanne paid the same wage, her variable costs would increase to 18 per job. Do you think that Joanne should pay the same wages to her cleaners as her competitors? Give reasons for your recommendation. [9 marks] Relevant answers might include the following: AO1/Level 1 Responses might demonstrate the following knowledge: identifies that higher variable costs mean a higher break-even point profits will decrease need to match competitors wages. AO2/Level 2 Responses might include the following contextual explanations: break-even point will rise to 20 profit will fall from 360 to 240 Joanne s customers are happy with the high quality cleaning jobs that she provides so she needs to attract the best cleaners a lot depends on the level of employment of cleaners, her salary may be quite reasonable. AO3/Level 3 (Analysis) if she does not increase wages to match competitors, her lower wages will not attract new experienced cleaners if they can work for competitors this increase in variable costs will cause profits to fall and break even to rise (break-even point will rise to 20 and profit will fall from 360 to 240). This means she will not reach her target of 300 profit per week from the team without taking some action to reduce break even Quality Clean is a new high quality business so it will be difficult to attract the right type and quantity of cleaners if she does not match the wages of competitors her options for action are limited because she will not be able to increase prices much because her competitors are only charging 1 2 more and she is a new business that is not yet fully established. 3 2 Analyses the effect that an increase in cleaners, wages would have on Joanne s business.

9 2 (c) Using Item B and your answer to question 2(a), recommend to Joanne whether or not Quality Clean should accept the contract from National Workspace plc. Give reasons for your recommendation. [9 marks] Relevant answers might include the following: AO1/Level 1 Responses might demonstrate the following knowledge: Reasons for/against accepting the contract from National workspace plc: more profits more customer awareness risk. AO2/Level 2 Responses might include the following contextual explanations: For the cash-flow forecast is temporary and the possible profits are attractive if this contract is successful it could attract future orders, which are less likely to experience cash-flow problems as cash will be generated by the initial contract. Against the business could be overstretching itself as the cash flow illustrates if the contract is not successful (after four months) Quality Clean could be left with unneeded equipment. This would be the case even if the equipment is bought outright or leased will Quality Clean be able to manage the extra work? AO3/Level 3 (Analysis) initially, there is a cash-flow problem because new equipment is required, and moving to the commercial market involves trade credit, however the cash-flow problem diminishes quickly. The contract is profitable and, if successful, the business model could be used for other contracts the contract is only for an initial four months and might not continue. The business will need to have sourced new equipment that would no longer be required which will need to be written off against profits meaning an overall loss. 3 Analyses benefits/drawbacks of accepting/rejecting the contract. 2 Explain benefits/drawbacks of accepting/rejecting the contract. 1 States relevant points. 1 0 No valid response AO3 2 AO2 AO1 9 of 14
