Political factors can have huge implications on a business. This can depend on how stable or instable the degree of policy and government is within the country. For example, a change in government can lead to instability as this would cause uncertainties within the government. The current coalition government would be considered stable in its current position.

As you can see this grant is aimed at young people who are currently part time or unemployed. The main aim of this grant is to encourage young people to start business and to get the unemployed back into work through the start-up of their own business. This specific grant wouldn’t be available to with cross street news or glow warm as they are already a developed and recognised business. Along with grants, a stable government is also more likely to be in a position to issue initiatives to help a business grow and to encourage them to move forward.

Global economic stability would also make it easier and cheap for businesses to import and export goods. This again would have a positive impact of on all businesses. The UK is also a member of the EU.

They can make it very difficult for countries to trade with each other if they wish and they also have the power to make and enforce new sanctions throughout Europe. An example of when the EU has imposed...
