  • 1. Unit 1 M3 Lewis Appleton 1 Miss Johnston Political Factors Tesco Tesco are mostly affected by Taxation. Everyone within the business are affected by this is because the profits that are made by the business are reduced from taxation such as corporation tax. This to the different employees within the business having to be paid less to be able to make up for the loss of profits, as well as this the products sold by the business will have to be sold at a higher price. This means that customers will have to spend more money. This is a very bad effect on the business because it means they will make a lower rate of profit and for this they will have to do other things to make up for the losses. The effect of this is very bad on a business because a high corporation tax adds up to a huge loss of profits. The way this factor affects the business is because the money that they make in profits has a certain percentage deducted and goes to the government. To combat these problems it will mean people that spend money on the business will have to spend more and people that receive money from the business will receive less. This puts the business at a disadvantage because they will lose money. BritishRed Cross The government support the British Red Cross because they are an organisation within the voluntary sector and the government does this through grants and tax relief. The money provided from the government allows the organisation to carry out their operations and this is why this is the most important factor for the British Red Cross. Without the money the government provides the organisation will not be able to carry out the majority of its operations because they will need additional funding. The money the government provide to organisations like these are called subsidies. Legal Factors Tesco Tesco are mostly affected by the competition law, this is because they are one of the leading businesses that do marketing within the UK and therefore there are certain laws they have to follow. This is because they are not allowed to dominate a certain market group or copy the operations of other competing businesses and all of the competitors should be allowed to have a fair competition. The leading people within the business are affected because they are the people that carry out the main operations that affect how competitive they are. This can be a bad effect because it restricts them from doing certain things to try and be the leading competitor. This is also a very large effect as Tesco is one of the most leading competitors. BritishRed Cross British Red Cross are mostly affected by the contract law, this is because that this is the only law that really applies to them as they have to ensure of the safety of their volunteers. The people that are affected from this are mainly the volunteers as they

This effect is good on the volunteers because if any problems were to happen they will be able to be protected. The effect isn’t very large and only has any difference during major consequences. This factor has a small impact on the firm because it gives them an increased responsibility. All the firm has to do to combat this is go through with their volunteers and take some time to fill out contracts. There are also paid employees at British Red Cross and therefore the employment law also affects them such as changes in minimum wage. Social factors Tesco Tesco are mostly affected by the demographic issues, this is because there is a rising population. Nearly everyone within the business is affected by this because it means a variety of things. This effect can first of all be a very good thing for Tesco because of two main reasons, first of all the increase in the population means that more people are going to be buying things and therefore Tesco is one of the places that will be used. Second of all there is an increase of people looking for jobs which means three more things, Tesco have a larger choice of people to choose for jobs, Tesco can reduce the salaries and still have a larger amount of applications, and Tesco can raise the qualifications to give the same effect. This is a very large effect on the business. This causes an impact because there is more demand for products, in response Tesco can higher product prices and still makes a profit. BritishRed Cross The British Red Cross are mostly affected by the demographic issues as well; this is because there is a rising and aging population. Everyone in the British Red Cross is affected by this because of many reasons, first of all there will be more people available to work for them but second of all there will be more people that are older and therefore they will need more assistance. This can therefore either be a good or bad effect on the company as there are two sides to the situation. This effect is also a very large effect because if the company does not have enough people available to help others then there will also be more people needing help and therefore will go into a bad spiral of being unable to help people. In response to this the British Red Cross will possibly have to increase awareness of their organisation in hope of getting more volunteers.
