Legal Structures

Common structures include:

  • Sole Trader
  • Unincorporated Partnership
  • Limited Liability Partnership
  • Limited Company

The structure you adopt may affect your liabilities as an individual and those of your business should things not go as planned.  There may also be tax implications, and you may have to consider matters relating to the assets owned and used, and property owned, used or occupied by your business.
