    I possess a six-month old single-owner LLC, that we operate from the house. I wish to buy a vehicle for my company. My opportunity is really a telecom-talking to business, therefore the primary use for that vehicle is always to drive to client visits and also to take packages towards the local shipping store. I typically avoid much personal driving throughout a few days after business hrs.

    I don’t know basically should pay cash for that vehicle, or maybe I have to finance the vehicle. That is a better write-off?

    My spouse has her vehicle, and it’s used by us mainly to see relatives functions. So, just how much could I personally use the organization vehicle in my personal use without the chance of doing something illegal (tax-smart)? My spouse would most likely never make use of the vehicle, despite the fact that she’s technically an worker.

    I loathe math, as there have been some residual problems with mathematics in my academic record. As far as college business math, and real world applications, how much of this will need to be retained in order to successfully function in academia and the “real world”?

    GENERAL Business Administration, meaning without a major or concentration within the degree…I mean many schools like to market as being an excellent choice for students who wish to pursue a broad business education, but I see this as a negative. Why? Well they’re not really qualified to do anything. There just isn’t enough emphasis on any area of business to seem marketable at all. Why do so many students choose this degree?

    I am a recent graduate of a tier three school, with a degree in finance. I currently have no experience, so I am basically in the entry level status. Anyways, I would love to pursue an analyst position or possibly get involved with budgeting/forecasting. I guess you could say those are my goals. I still havent truly decided what I want to do. I have interviewed and thought about some possible jobs, I just dont know what is going to get me the experience I need. I dont want dead end experience.

    Work in Retail Banking – I have purused personal banker positions, but most are telling me to start out as a teller!

    Work in Mortgage Origination – this is with a bank that specializes in mortgages (Indymac Bank) Offered me a position, but its hourly.

    Basically im trying to get a job thats not necessarily glamorous paying the big bucks, but instead allows me to develop good work ethic, with the possibility to learn and grown and mold myself into a essential player in society!

    We are learning about the marketing key function of a business (other key functions include operations, finance and human resources) in Business studies and we were asked to research a consumer law and how it affects the marketing function of a business. I can’t find any simplified summary of what the ACL actually is, so I was wondering what exactly is it and how does it affect marketing?
    Thanks heaps

    I’ve found a university in europe that only has courses in english that sound like this: international business administration, business administration and service, international business and politics. Is one of them good if I want to become an investment banker.After I finish it can I take my MBA?

    How would businesses respond to IT development? Its a homework question and I’m a bit stuck on it.

    Keeping in mind that graduation will be at least three years away. Some people feel that finance currently may not be relevant because of the changing economy and new regulations but does anyone else agree with that?

    I have applied for an Accounting and Finance BA Hons at University but in recent weeks have become slightly apprehensive over my course selection.

    Are there many differences between the courses in terms of work placements following graduation and will both lead to the possibility of becoming a chartered accountant?
