Tesco & British Heart Foundation (A profit and non-profit Business)

Tesco is a supermarket and I am writing about how much profit it gains and other crucial information about it.Tesco is a large,International supermarket with stores built in 11 other countries.(founded in 1919) These include the UK & Europe, India,Malaysia and many more. In total, Tesco serve over 78 million people per week. Just in the UK, they have built around 3500 stores and over 476,000 Employers (2016) within them.They introduced a system of saving money. This is when the clubcard was introduced in 1996. The clubcard helped customers save money as everytime they buy a product ,you earn points.Whilst you earn more points,you also earn more money. ‘Every little helps.’

Tesco is open 24 hours a day in stores and on online shopping meaning that customers can have a flexible shopping time depending on whether they have a day or night shift at work.

As inflation occurs in the UK, businesses increase the prices of their products. Because of this, less customers are going to buy from that store as they are expecting cheaper prices. Stores such as LIDL and ALDI ship in goods from their own country, the tax in their own country is quite high but when it comes into the UK, the tax rate decreases by a lot, meaning that they sell it for cheaper but still gain profit and effect Tesco and other supermarkets.

The unemployment rate in Sri lanka has currently gone down from 4.6% to 4.5%. However, The inflation and interest rate has gone up drastically. This is bad for businesses in Sri lanka as customers are not willing to buy goods as much as before, as the prices have gone up a lot.

Political:

UK Co-operation tax – 20%

As the co-operative tax has gone low from 28% to 20%. Its very good for the business and beacuse if that they get a good net income over the years.

Sri lanka Co-operation tax – 15% (2015 – 2016)

As the co-operative tax has gone low from 28% to 15%. This is good for the business even though there are not many young people in the overall population, the business will be fine.

Social:

UK population size – 65,332,632(2015)

Sri lankas Population size – 20,810,816 (2016)

Age of population:

UK

0-14= 11,100 million

15-64=41,704 million

65+ = 10,378 million

As the population of young people is greater than the population of 65+ so Tesco will make a lot more profit.

Sri lanka

0-14= 5,087,817

15-64 = 14,570,430

65+=17,295,044

As ther population of 65+ is greater than the population of young people, the demand will be very low as elder people don’t consume as many goods as younger people. The government are trying to increase the population of young poeple in demand of work forces.

Business in Sri lanka:

Cargills(ceylon) PLC is the biggest online supermarket in Sri lanka. This business is public limited company. They deliver groceries to anywhere in Sri lanka at the local store price. The number of employees is 1870 (2016.) The revenue Rs71.44 billion(2016)
