All business’, whether a recent start-up or a long-standing commercial giant, are profit maximisers. This means that they strive for as few outgoings and expenses as possible, coupled with the largest revenue.

Background on Old vs New

When it comes to cutting back on expenses there are many avenues to take for a business; some may be very beneficial, such as bulk ordering stock and achieving an economy of scale to create an eventual lower price per product. On the other hand, there are opportunities for the short term cost savers to have a large negative impact in the long-run. This happens when a firm purchases an asset at a lower price than usual, creating a smaller expense;  however within a short time frame, that asset becomes unusable due to its deterioration and depreciation. When this occurs the business will have to re-purchase the asset again, evidencing how the phrase ‘buy cheap, buy twice’ rings true!

Experienced business’ will know this cycle and look to incorporate ways of avoiding it, this may mean buying a new asset as opposed to an old one to elongate the lifespan and omit future business expenses (re-purchase, upkeep etc).
