Is sole trader or ltd best way to go?

Sole trader, you don't need an accountant, because my friend, you won't make too much money from this job, trust me...



Makes sense to register for vat. Do you want to pay govenment 20% of your fuel bill. Ltd company only after you are earning £40000 profits a year. Tax advantageous. Stay sole trader.
