Sole traders

One of the advantages of registering as a sole trader is that workers are only required to file and submit a self-assessment every year (plus VAT returns, if they are VAT registered). It’s a popular route for construction professionals, creatives, consultants, and entrepreneurs who don’t want to manage the paperwork and additional tax implications that come with setting up a limited liability partnership or a limited company. However, sole traders will still need to create a full set of accounts, ensure the information their self-assessment is accurate, and submit all documents ahead of HMRC’s strict deadlines. This is where A&Z Accountancy can help.

Limited liability partnerships

From a legal standpoint, it’s easy to enter into a partnership without knowing it. That’s why, if two or more people wish to start a new venture together, we always recommend outlining all roles and responsibilities within a professionally drafted partnership agreement. This is especially important as all partners need to be aware that they can be personally accountable for any debts accrued by the partnership. Under this type of company structure, all untaxed profits will be distributed to all partners, who will then need to complete their annual self-assessment to determine their tax liabilities (or call upon a team like ours to support them).

Limited companies

There are many benefits to setting up a limited company, not least that the company will be legally separate from its shareholders and directors. This means that the company can be assigned its own assets and incur its own debts – while the assets of the people involved remain protected. Limited company owners will need to incorporate their business with Companies House; submit their full statutory accounts; attend yearly meetings; and submit a corporation tax return to HMRC on an annual basis. Failure to carry out these tasks and meet the applicable deadlines will result in fines. Our accountants for SMEs can take care of all the necessary documentation for you.
