Sole Trader Debt

Sole Trader | Self Employed | Small Business Debt

The challenge for a Sole Trader who is struggling financially is that there is no legal distinction between the owner and the business. Essentially, any debts accrued will be treated the same as personal debts.

In the event of any liabilities as a result of a failed business, you stand to lose everything including personal assets. Creditors will pursue you personally for full repyament of the debt.

If you are a Sole Trader and you are struggling financially, it isn't too late to get help. Contact us now at Business Debt Advice and we will do our utmost to help you and your business get through this difficult period.
