Sole Trader (Self-employed) – A sole trader or self-employed is a type of enterprise owned and runed by one person. There is no legal distinction between the owner and the business. The sole trader receives all profits and has unlimited responsibility for all losses and debts.

Our online self employment registration form allows you to register for self employment from the comfort of your home. The form is quick and easy to fill out.

We make this process simple for you by taking care of the necessary processes. One of our employees from our team of professionals will help you register as a sole trader by checking your forms and sending out your self employment registration. You can be confident that you will get it correct the first time. The steps involved in registering might be time-consuming and even confusing. We can fill out all of the essential documents for you and ensure that the information we supply for your registration is accurate. Registering as a sole trader informs the Revenue that you are self-employed and should be taxed accordingly.
