Business models are not a new thing. They have been around for as long as businesses have decided to look at future profit and value. Although we are a small business it is still necessary to model how we want to achieve value and profit through the life of the business.
The business model can be altered, added to or completely rewritten in the future but for the life of the business, its core values must not be dropped.
Gross profit formulae will be calculated as Gross Profit Margin = Net Income - materials, labour / Net Income.
We will not add the Directors or office staff costs.
This is then the Gross Profit Margin shown as a percentage.

4.1 Market Segmentation
Wates Construction managing director Paul Chandler said: “The chancellor highlighted the importance of the construction industry in his announcement and specifically the house-building sector, which is directly responsible for more than a quarter of a million jobs and the stamp duty cut will undoubtedly provide much-needed confidence in the housing market.
“However, more people buying and selling houses does not necessarily translate into more houses being built and so other issues such as planning reform must also be tackled simultaneously if we are going to deliver the homes – and the associated jobs – that this country desperately needs.
“At the heart of the government’s announcement today was sustainability and a recognition of the huge opportunity for growth in the ‘green’ sector but the big challenge for the government in this area is one of ambition.
“The numbers announced today are not insignificant but while the intent is unquestionably sound, the quantum impact may not be as transformational as the government may hope.
“Today’s announcements are an important first step in kick-starting the UK economy but what we need next is a long term strategy that recognises and then tackles the major challenges facing the UK in the years ahead such as the levelling up of the regions, population growth and the climate emergency, not to mention the impact of Brexit."
