Rose, Jean and Dorothy have been trading as a partnership for the last three years. However, their accountant advised them to convert to a limited company in order to reduce their tax liability.

In order to keep costs down, they are using old machinery, some without guards to protect the operator from the moving parts involved in the production process. As the business has always been seen as a family business there is no union representation at the factory.The company sells some goods to retailers and some direct to the public. The company maintains records on those direct customers in a manual filing system with a view to sending a mail shot to these regular customers when sales need to be increased.
