BULAW 2611 Organisation Law
Assignment
Semester 2, 2013

Purpose
To enable you to apply problem solving skills; to research and compare
characteristics of specific forms of business organisation, and to evaluate the
most appropriate form of business organisation in a specific situation.
The Assignment will be marked out of 100 and is worth 30% of your total mark
for the BULAW2611 course.
It is important for you to have time to think through how to structure and
present arguments, and to review and discuss what the law is in a particular
area. Whilst discussion with others is encouraged, the final piece of
work must be your own.
Word Limit
2,300-2,500 in total (assignments exceeding the word limit may not be
marked and may be returned to the student for re-writing; assignments less
than the required length will risk not covering the topic adequately and may
result in a fail). Do not include synopsis, references or bibliography in the
word count.
Note: All University of Ballarat rules relating to referencing, citation and
acknowledgement must be complied with.
Due Date
Please see your lecturer for submission arrangements.
Required
Read the fact situation below and complete the tasks in Part A and Part
B.
Liam, Nisha, Saul and Jing are first year university students who have
recently opened a bakery (Bio Breads) at their university. Liam, Nisha, Saul
and Jing have entered a written agreement with the university that enables
them to use the university cafeteria ovens overnight to bake bread which is
then sold from a stall located within the university’s food court.
Only certified biodynamic or organic grains and ingredients are used in the
many different Bio Bread loaves, and on the rare occasion ingredients are
sourced from overseas, the Bio Bread operators, Liam, Nisha Saul and Jing,
ensure only fair trade certified products are purchased. The operators all
strongly believe that only sustainable agricultural practices should be
encouraged and that grain growers and other suppliers should be paid a fair
price for their labour. In addition to these shared beliefs, Liam, Nisha, Saul
and Jing do not approve of large multinational corporations – preferring
smaller business structures and the concept of buying from local suppliers
wherever possible.
In keeping with their beliefs that a fair price should be paid for labour Liam,
Nisha, Saul and Jing believe they also should receive a reasonable financial
return for their labour as bakers and operators of the Bio Breads business.
While prices are kept as low as possible at the bakery, the large volume of
sales means that Bio Breads is a profitable operation. The operators choose
to share the profits equally between themselves.
Liam, Nisha, Saul and Jing are, however, finding it difficult to keep up with
demand and often have to turn customers away. This is very much against
their beliefs that Bio Breads should be a place where all who wish to purchase
reasonably priced biodynamic, organic or fair trade food are welcomed. Liam,
Nisha, Saul and Jing are also struggling to keep up with their studies because
they are spending so much time running the bakery.
Liam, Nisha, Saul and Jing approach you for some advice. In particular, they
are seeking your opinion about which of the following ways of organising the
business is most appropriate given the specific circumstances described
above.
? Partnership
? Co-operative
? Company
While you are familiar with some of the characteristics of partnerships and
companies you have less knowledge about co-operatives, so you inform
Liam, Nisha, Saul and Jing that you need to do some research before you can
give them your opinion.
Required: Complete the tasks in Part A and Part B.
Part A (60 marks)
Compare the essential characteristics of partnerships (20 marks), co-operatives
(20 marks) and companies (20 marks) ‘the business structures’.
In your answer you must discuss:
? the respective advantages and disadvantages of each of these
business structures
? the steps required in forming a partnership, a co-operative and a
company – and how each business structure can be ended
? further structural options within each of the business structures (eg
provided certain requirements are met a partnership may be a general
partnership or a limited partnership)
? how capital may be raised, and any restrictions on capital raising for
each business structure
? the regulatory environment for each business structure (is there a
specific regulator? Does specific legislation apply to that structure? If
so, is it state, commonwealth or a combination of both?)
? internal management and governance requirements for each business
structure.
Note: limit your comparison to partnerships, co-operatives and companies –
and structures within these. DO NOT discuss sole traders, joint ventures,
franchises, associations. And make sure you use the correct state based
legislation for your location …
Part B (40 marks)
Based on your comparison in Part A, advise Liam, Nisha, Saul and Jing which
business structure is most appropriate given the specific circumstances of the
Bio Breads operations as set out above. In your answer you must give
reasons for your advice. (20 marks)
You must also explain why neither of the other two business structures are, in
your opinion, the most appropriate. (10+10 marks)
