Sole trader; the simplest and most cost efficient way of trading. Start-up costs are low as set up and operation is more simple – there is no red tape. Whilst there are only a few formalities to trading as a sole trader compared to trading as a limited company, there are still certain obligations to fulfil which you may want an accountant to assist with, the most important of which is informing HMRC. Every business is required to prepare accounts each year, which forms the basis of how tax and national insurance is paid. Any profits generated in this medium are automatically those of the sole trader.
At Adams Moore accountants we can help you to understand the accounting requirements for your sole trader business, for example how much income tax you need to pay, self assessment, or the significance of using your home as your business premises. We can save you time so that you can get on with the day to day running of your business.
Who are our sole traders? Our clients come from all sectors, including builders, painter/decorators, carpenters, plumbers, bricklayers, hairdressers, tattoo artists, pharmacists, childminders, landscape gardeners, internet retailers, kitchen fitters, taxi drivers and café owners.
