A sole trader is a simple and cheap way to start a business, and is when a single person is running a company, and no one else is allowed to be involved with controlling the business, like a partnership.

While starting a business as a sole trader simplifies the process of getting the paperwork and necessary approvals, it does mean that the person who started the company is legally responsible for all aspects of the company, including the financials.

Sole traders have different legal tax and reporting obligations than companies, and it’s crucial that sole traders abide by these rules.

If you’ve started a sole trader business, but aren’t sure exactly what is entailed from the financial side, then it’s a great idea to get some help from an accountant. On the other hand, even if you have wrapped your head around what’s required administratively and financially for a sole trader, an accountant can still help free up time, boost productivity and increase revenue for your business.

Tax and accounting

Different industries have different rules when it comes to tax and accounting. The same rings true for different types of companies, like sole traders or subcontractors.

When running your own business, it’s crucial that you understand the tax formalities that apply to you so that you can make sure you’re tax compliant. For example, some industries may require additional goods and services tax to be applied to sales and paid at tax time.

It’s also important to make sure that the correct accounting and financial decisions are made for your business. Our accountants can ensure this is done, and they can also help you maximise your personal income tax return.

Elements like performance, fees and investment options should all be understood and will affect which fund is most appropriate for you.

Why Hiring an Accountant Can Help Your Sole-Trading Business Succeed

It’s very common for sole traders to hire independent contractors to help out with their business. Independent contractors aren’t classified as employees, but instead are usually short term hires that work under a specific contract with set out terms. On boarding an independent contractor can be complex, and our accountants can help with the paperwork, terms and payments for their services. By offloading this duty to an accountant, you can ensure that it’s done correctly and that it’s compliant.

Financial reports can be complicated, this is especially true if they aren’t done regularly, for example, if your business needs a financial report annually. An accountant specialises in creating financial reports and will gather the data they require to create a correct, concise, compliant and useful financial report when required.

Most people know that an accountant helps to compile financial data and records that are a requirement for all businesses, especially in regards to tax obligations. However, it’s less commonly known that an accountant can analyse this data and make suggestions to help your business grow and succeed.
