(1) Sole Trader
A person who runs the business on his own also gets to keep prophet of
business. Sole traders are normally small businesses, and by becoming
a sole trader you risk lots of things, which makes you unlimitedly
liable this means if your business is not going well the government
can take away almost everything from you; your house, your car etc,
all your goods and valuable things and invaluable, the owner has to
pay for any losses made by the business. For example if you made a
