Chapter

Abstract

This chapter is principally concerned with the finance of a new and developing business. The risks associated with business affairs, in particular new ventures, are discussed, and some indication is given of the problems of calculating the initial capital of a new business. Finally, various short- and long-term methods of raising funds are considered. The possibility of raising capital by taking a partner is seen to involve several serious disadvantages. Consequently most small businesses are registered as private companies.
