TASK 1
1.1
According to the scenario, SMR is a reputable restaurant which is operating in Gants Hill,
East London from past 10 year. It built-up a strong reputation in the market by offering various
inter-continental food items at an acceptable prices. Now, in order to expand operations, it is
planning to begin two branches in Central London and Croydon requiring investment worth
£300,000 and £500,000 respectively. In order to finance its proposed expansion plan, it can gather
funds through following sources:
Debt fund: In UK and all the other countries, commercial banks and financial institutions
provide funding facilities to the corporations to meet their capital need at an interest rate. Thus, one
of the options available to SMR to gather funds is to raise capital through external borrowings.
Hire purchase (HP): At the time of beginning branches in Central London and Croydon,
SMR can decide to use rented office rather than purchasing it (Berger and Black, 2011). In this,
SMR can purchase property on HP system through making some initial down payment and rest in
equal periodical instalments.
Retained earnings: Companies distribute some proportion of their net earnings to
shareholders and rest of the part is called retained earnings. It is another option available to SMR to
3
meet their capital requirement through ploughing back their available retains profits in the business
to support proposed expansion plan.
Trade credit: It is an arrangement between manufacturer and creditors, in which, supplier
agrees to deliver material on credit (Brandimarte, 2013). Through this, restaurant can take some
time to make payment to the suppliers after gathering sales revenues.
Overdraft: Commercial banks allow their customers to withdraw some extent amount than
their available balance in account, called overdraft. It can provide huge help to SMR to meet their
urgent short-term capital requirement.
1.2
Sources Financial Legal Control dilution Bankruptcy
Debt Every commercial bank
charges an interest rate on
provided debt services on
the entities that is its
financial implications. It is
necessary for the SMR to
pay their loan instalments
inclusive interest
periodically.
Mortgage and
securities has to be
provided to the bank
to make lenders
relaxed about fund
security (Guariglia,
Liu and Song, 2011).
Lenders have no
authority to take
participation in
business decisions
and cannot control
operations.
It exists,
because if
restaurant goes
for insolvency
than it will have
to sale their
property for
repayment of
loan amount.
HP Instalments which are
decided by assets vendors
always include some
interest charges so as to
get some extra return in
financial terms (Arrondel,
Debbichand Savignac,
2014).
Parties have to follow
decided terms and
conditions and
ownership will not be
transferred to SMR
till the payment of
final instalment.
Vendors have no
power to interfere
in business
decisions.
No bankruptcy
implication
exists.
Retained
earnings
No financial cost. Entrepreneur need to
transfer some amount
in legal reserves.
No dilution as it is
already the part of
owner’s capital
(Vernimmen and
et.al., 2014).
Same as HP.
Trade Creditors charge some Timely payment is It does not transfer Same as above.
