Sole Tradership

Sole proprietorship or individual proprietorship is the simplest oldest and in some respect the most natural form of business organization in the private sector. When the mankind merged out of the stone era, he was referred as “Homo Sapiens” who started business in sloe ownership. In this form a single individual is solely responsible for providing the capital, for bearing the risks and for the overall management and control of the enterprise. It is a one-man show owned, financed and operated by one person. The leading feature of this kind of concern is that the individual assumes full responsibility for the risks connected with the conduct of the also considered organizer and manager. He takes all the profits or responsibility for losses of the business.
