Benefits for a sole trader
There are many benefits to being a sole trader. Start-up costs are low as set-up and operation is simpler – there is no red tape. You are your own boss, can make all the business decisions and retain all profits. Should you wish to wind up your business at a later stage, it is much easier to do so from a sole trader status. It’s a great way to start-up, as the business structure can be changed at a later stage as the business grows.
However, there are some aspects to bear in mind if considering becoming a sole trader. As there is no distinction between your business and your personal assets, you are liable for any debt incurred in business operations. You will also pay tax as a single person, and raising finance for business start-up or growth can be more difficult.
As your sole trader accountant, Adams Moore can recommend the best business structure for you on an ongoing basis, offer tax return advice and take the accountancy stresses away, leaving you to get on with your day to day.
