And yet two different workplaces may have the same nominal floor space and rent. If you bought most of your equipment second-hand and you have kept it in good condition, it is probably worth much more to you than its website value. But the buying price is only one consideration; perhaps even more important is whether it is the right equipment for your business. It is easy to be pressured into buying what the sales person wants to sell you rather than what you really need, especially if you- are not sure of the latter.

If you bought new equipment which is unsuitable, you will lose a lot -of money when you sell it. Nevertheless, if you can replace it with the right goods second-hand, you may not be too much out- of pocket.

Needless to say, if you lack the personal expertise, you should get a reliable mechanic to check any second-hand equipment before you buy it.

Supplies and stocks Broadly speaking there are three main types of supplies: consumable materials eg stationery, lubricants, cleaning materials, raw materials and components; goods for resale. The proportions of these three types obviously vary widely from one type of business to another, but there are few businesses where expenditure on supplies is unimportant. Indeed, in many types of business, shrewd-buying makes all the difference between profit and loss. When you started your business, you had to find out the right suppliers for your business, ones who were reliable and who would supply what you wanted, when you wanted it, at reasonable prices.

This is a trial-and-error activity and some error is almost inevitable.

In short, you paid a price for learning which suppliers to use, and this' knowledge is now one of your resources. Consumable materials are a small proportion of expenditure in most businesses. This does not mean that you should ignore the cost but you should keep a sense of proportion.
