Do I need an accountant as a sole trader?



I plan to do business as a sole trader, but I am a little wary about handling the finances for a business. As a sole trader, will I need an accountant?




Hi Melissa,

You don’t have to use an accountant but it might be a good idea if you’re not sure how to deal with business finances and paperwork. An accountant could save you a lot of time and money in the long run.
