What are the advantages vs disadvantages of being a sole trader?

Advantages
disadvantages

Get started immediately

There is no need to register your business with Companies House if you decide to become a sole trader.As a result, you can start working as soon as you are ready.

Personal Responsibility for Business

Unlike the owner of a limited liability company, sole traders bear full responsibility for all decisions and consequences. All debts related to the business's financial difficulties must be paid out of personal assets if there is not enough money in the business. This applies to all property of a sole proprietor, including their house, which can lead to personal bankruptcy.

Fast and Simple Registration

The only thing sole traders are legally required to do after having started working this way, is register as self-employed for tax purposes. This is effectively you telling HMRC to expect your Income Tax via the Self-Assessment Tax Return

Barriers to finance

sole traders often find it difficult to raise finance to fund their business. They may struggle with expansion in the future.

Full control of the business

As the sole owner of your business, you have full control over it. Without any shareholders or directors in the equation, you’re free to make your own decisions and run your business exactly how you want.

Barriers to finance

sole traders often find it difficult to raise finance to fund their business. They may struggle with expansion in the future.

Complete Privacy

All financial information related to sole traders remains private, while the annual report of the limited liability company may be made available on the Companies House website..

Less Tax efficient Structure

Sole traders are required to pay Income Tax on the full extent of their profits each year. This is in contrast to limited company profits, which are liable to lower rates of Corporation Tax.

Retain all Profits

Sole traders retain all the profits of their business. In addition to profit retention, a sole trader may also retain personal ownership of business assets.

Heavy workload

When you run a sole trader business, the amount of work you have is dependent on your availability and hours.if you're sick and unable to work, there's no sick pay to cover you.
