It is a big decision to take to go from being self-employed to becoming the director of your own Limited company. Being a sole trader may be a good way to run a business. But there are many advantages of taking your business a step further while operating as a full-fledged limited company.

In the UK, setting yourself as a self-employed sole trader is a simple process, but it has some conditions. That is why thousands of new sole traders are choosing to open a limited company each year. To register online with HMRC for self-assessment, you need a personal tax code reference number.
