With this type of business organization, you would be fully responsible for all debts and obligations related to your business and all profits would be yours alone to keep. As a solo owner of the business, a creditor can make a claim against your personal or business assets to pay off any debt.

  • Difficulty raising capital on your own

What is a Partnership business? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

A partnership is a good business structure if you want to carry on a business with a partner and you do not wish to incorporate your business. With a partnership, financial resources are combined and put into the business. You can establish the terms of your business with your partner and protect yourself in case of a disagreement or dissolution by drawing up a specific business agreement. As partners, you would share in the profits of your business according to the terms of your agreement.

You may also be interested in a limited liability partnership in the business. This means that you would not take part in the control or management of the business, but would be liable for debts to a specified extent only.

When establishing a partnership, you should have a partnership agreement drawn up with the assistance of a lawyer, to ensure that:

  • Similar to sole proprietorship, as there is no legal difference between you and your business
  • Unlimited liability (if you have business debts, personal assets would be used to pay off the debt)
  • Hard to find a suitable partner
  • Possible development of conflict between you and your partner
  • You are held financially responsible for business decisions made by your partner (for example, contracts that are broken)

What is a Corporation business? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

What is a Co-operation business? What are the pros and cons?

This is the least common form of business, but can be appropriate in situations where a group of persons or businesses decide to pool their resources to provide access to common needs, such as the delivery of products or services, the sale of products or services, employment, and more.


  • Owned and controlled by members
  • Democratic control (one member, one vote)
