A sole proprietorship is a type of business organization in which an individual operates and owns the business as an individual, without forming a separate legal entity. Sole proprietorships are often the simplest and least expensive type of business organization to form, as they do not require the same level of legal and administrative compliance as other business structures.
However, there are also some disadvantages to operating as a sole proprietor, including unlimited personal liability for the debts and obligations of the business. This means that if the business incurs debt, the sole proprietor may be personally responsible for repaying that debt. It is important to understand the level of liability involved and to take steps to minimize that liability, such as incorporating or forming a limited liability company.
