JUNIOR CERTIFICATE 2009 MARKING SCHEME BUSINESS STUDIES PAPER 2 HIGHER LEVEL Page 1 of 17 Junior Certificate Examination 2009 Business Studies Higher Level – Paper 2 Marking Scheme and Support Notes for use with the Marking Scheme In considering this marking scheme the following points should be noted: The support notes presented are not exclusive or definitive and alternative answers may be acceptable if deemed valid; They are support notes and not model or suggested answers; The bookkeeping layout as presented in the support notes may be accepted as best practice.

However, in some bookkeeping questions there can be a number of alternative approaches and formats that can be validly used by candidates; Further relevant points of information presented by candidates are marked and rewarded on their merits; The detail required in any answer is determined by the context and the manner in which the question is asked and by the number of marks assigned to the answer on the examination paper. Requirements and mark allocations may therefore vary from year to year.

Issued Share Capital This is the amount of finance that a limited company has raised to date from issuing shares to its shareholders (owners). Collateral

This is the security that a business offers to a bank when it looks for a loan. If the business cannot pay back the loan the bank can takeover the item the loan was secured against.

Land and Buildings are examples of security. Overtrading This is where a company has a negative working capital i. e. Current Liabilities are greater than Current Assets. OR The company relies too heavily on Creditors and Bank Overdrafts when it should be obtaining more share capital or long term loans.
