Constraints on the business

expensive
- Trade barriers e.g. quotas – find alternative local suppliers but may be producing poor quality
- New Technology – borrow money so as to cope up with new technology but technology can be
obsolete.
- High competition – find ways of having competitive advantage but it is expensive
- Low disposable income – produce low priced goods but low priced goods are perceived as of
low quality.
- High death rate – supply goods for funerals but high competition if most businesses switch to
that business.

Constraints from both items 2 and 3 should be evaluated.

Up to 3 marks for each constraint evaluated. At least 4 constraints from each item.
