Sole traders are businesses owned and operated by just one person. Despite just one person being in control, they can still have employees. Setting up as a sole trader means you'll have unlimited liability, and so be responsible for paying any debts your business might accrue.

Considering sole trader registration? Benefits of being a sole trader include:

  • Easy to set up - due to their small size and lack of complex regulations, they can set up without hassle.
  • Low capital - doesn't require a great deal of money to be invested initially. This means start up cost can be minimised.
  • Low wage bills - few or no employees mean not much is spent on the running of the business.
  • Easy to keep control - no one else has any input, decisions are solely up to you, the owner.

As a sole trader, you're expected to complete a self assessment tax return annually, pay income tax and pay national insurance. Depending on your takings, you may also need to be VAT registered.
