LTD or sole proprietorship – what is the responsibility?

Responsibility is deciding factor. In case of an s.p., the owner is absolutely responsible. This means they are liable with not only business assets, but also all personal assets. On the other hand we have the LTD shareholder. Their responsibility is limited. Because it is a capital company, they are only liable with the company’s capital.

What about the tax?

Another important factor are taxes. They can affect the decision between LTD or sole proprietorship. LTD’s usually pay a tax, based on their profits. The rate is usually 19 %. However, in some cases, the taxed can be standardized. This means they would be taxed on standard cost. Standard costs are more usual with sole proprietors.
