The purpose of this booklet is to produce information on how business organisations are assembled and utilized. I will provide this information by discussing how a small business runs and comparing it with how a large business is run. A small business is a company who employ less than 250 employees and has an annual turnover of less than £27 million. A large business employs anything greater than 250 employees and has a turnover of more than £27 million. If the company is in the public sector they receive their funds from the state and if they are in the private sector they receive their funds from the people who founded the company. This booklet is aimed at school and college leavers to give them information about businesses.

After reading this booklet hopefully school and college leavers will have a better insight into how companies are set up and run.
