Sole Trader

A sole trader is run by an individual with assets or investments owned personally. There is no legal separation between the individual and the business. This means that the individual is liable for any debts incurred by the business and income generated by the business is treated as personal income.


David operates a restaurant as a sole trader. All the assets that are part of the business are owned by David personally and he is personally responsible for any liabilities or debts the restaurant incurs.

To set up as a sole trader we strongly recommend seeking expert advice from one of our business advisors. Get in touch today to find out more about how we can help.
