As the financial statements of Dolphin Bakers compiled for the year 2013-2014, Mr. Ajeet Kumar who was the owner of the business was not happy with the performance of the bakery. He knew that the bakery has shown an excellent profitability for a long time according to the gross margin of his accounting system. Despite the excellent margin, he worried about the trustworthiness of the figures. The gross margin did not include any of the indirect costs related to the baking process. Mr. Ajeet suspected that the indirect cost might make up a bigger part of the total product cost in the bakery. Another cost that was not included in the margin, is the cost of goods not sold. This cost includes costs of products that is thrown away, stolen or not registered in a correct way. Mr.Ajeet thought that he has put too much faith in the margins produced in his management system and he wants to know what his margin would look like if he was to include all of the costs related to the products of the bakery but he don’t know how to start with this new method.

But as time passes after 1 year of his services his father could not be able to manage all the things alone so he asked him to join the real estate business along with his younger brother Mr. Sateesh who was just 21 years old and as this business was their family business and that need to be overtaken by someone inside from the family. As real estate business requires a lot of efforts to pursue customers and Mr Ajeet got the good communication skills so it helps the business to excel more and more. But Mr. Ajeet doesn’t seems happy and internally satisfied with the real estate business because he has identified a Market gape in Sukkur region which is of the unavailability of the state of the art Bakery which should have the one stop shop for everyone so he asked his father to hand over the real estate business to his younger brother Mr. Sateesh as now he has been well trained under the supervision of Mr. Ajeet.
