Paying Tax As A Sole Trader- All You Need To Know

Are you planning to start a new business all on your own? If yes, it’s important to register yourself as a sole trader, which will also help in reaping tax benefits. Sole trader means you are running a business solely or just as one person, which also makes you the sole proprietor of a company. In such business, all profits and losses are your responsibility, and you are accountable for all legal formalities involved.

There are many benefits a sole trader can enjoy in terms of profits and growth. Also, filing taxes is a lot simpler compared to large businesses and multinational firms. Before filing out taxes, a sole trader must be aware of the tax slab rate, potential deductions, and tax claims he or she can apply for.

Tax Paying Process For A Sole Trader

The PAYG (Pay-as-you-go) instalment system makes it simple for sole proprietors to pay their taxes. By using this method, they can pay their taxes on a quarterly basis rather than all at once. This move helps in saving money at the end of the fiscal year.

To begin with, choose an instalment amount to be paid every three months based on an estimate of the amount of revenue you anticipate earning as a sole proprietor.
