    Can someone let me know the figure they got for VGL's Return On Capital Employed? I have calculated it myself and got a different answer to the ZigZag resources.

    Pick two, this will ensure you go into adequate detail to achieve level 4. Quality is better than quantity! What did you get for ROCE? Its pretty important haha

    Capital employed is creditors falling due after one year added to net assets employed

    so for 2015 it is £109 million
    (don't treat the creditors as a negative when adding it)

    Look further up in the thread... there are loads of APT pack questions that you can practise including ones on the Four Pillars.

    Even if there isn't a question on it, you can always refer to it as a L4 point explaining how a certain action may conflict with their ethics as shown in the Four Pillars etc.

    My bad .. there are no questions on the Four Pillars in the thread..

    Well our teacher made up a question for us :

    Michael believes the VGL's 'Four Pillars' (appendix 1) will help motivate their staff as they will understand 'why they are there'. To what extent do you agree with Michael? [18]

    Fam, you got to PBIT not net profit ..

    So use the profit before taxation which is 5.2 for 2015 and add it to interest which is 1.2 which equals 6.4
