Sole trader versus limited company

Sole traders are just that – they trade on their own. They have no legal protection for themselves or their assets in case of bankruptcy. Limited companies offer this protection by giving owners limited liability, but it also comes with more admin and duties for directors.

It’s important to understand what your needs are before making any decisions about which type of company is right for you.

This week’s podcast of I Hate Numbers will help make things clearer.  Moreover you can find out if sole trading or becoming a limited company is best for your business. You will be able to see the pros and cons of each option, as well as seeing what’s what needs to be done when setting up either one.

What about your business risk and responsibilities?

For many smaller businesses being a sole trader offers a few financial advantages, but it also brings an increased level of risk.

Becoming a limited company can protect owners from these risks by giving them limited liability, but more admin and duties for the directors.

The difference between these two structures has to do with how they see you as an individual and your business. With a limited company, you don’t have liability for any debts or losses but if you are a sole trader then the law sees you and your business as the same so in this case, if there’s any debt or loss then it will be seen as your personal responsibility.
