Find out which is the best fit for you.
A sole trader is essentially a self-employed person who is the sole owner of their business. It’s the simplest business structure out there - which is probably why it’s the most popular – and you can set up as one via the GOV.UK website (you’ll need to do this for tax purposes).

A limited company is a type of business structure that has its own legal identity, separate from its owners (shareholders) and its managers (directors). This remains the case even if it’s run by just one person, acting as shareholder and director.
