As an increasing number of British people become sole traders, working for themselves and becoming part of the UK micro business community, we look at what the key ingredients to making it big by going alone.

Unlike a limited company, a sole trader is responsible for all losses incurred as a result of business operations so making sure issues such as VAT, insurance and invoicing are being dealt with correctly is paramount.
