Different Types Of Businiess / Sole Trader

Sole Trader

This is the simplest type of business, requiring no other registration other than the notification of your local tax office, but it is also the business that is exposed to the greatest personal risk.

Sole traders are responsible for all aspects to the company, and have unlimited liabillity to all debts and legal actions. This makes it harder to attract  outside investors or partners which will in turn hinder the expansion and progress of your business.

As a sole trader you are effectively the business, for example Joe Bloggs trading as JB Design. If the business were to fold with depbts you have to settle these debts from your personal assets
