Sole businesses are businesses with only one owner. Many businessmen and women engage in this type of business because in here, there’s only one boss, no employees to deal with and all profit goes to only one person which is the owner.
Unlike in a corporation where you have to deal with so many other owners, in a sole business, you have the only power to make decisions. You also have the single right to operate your business and manage it in the way you know. However, as a sole owner of your business, you are also subjected to all of the responsibilities and obligations. When things go wrong you cannot ask somebody else to solve the problems for you. Instead, you only have yourself to blame and to depend on. As a sole trader, you are also entitled to pay tax in your own right as a fraction of your income and at individual rate of your income tax. But with proper management and wise decision making, you can expect that your business will never face such big problems.Read more

My business partner and myself started a software development company in 2006 called Avantic Software, mostly consulting and we got to build some pretty cool products over the last few years. We needed a project of our own, something that would get us out of this consulting game and a product we can call our own.
We had both been annoyed over the last 5 years on the lack of great and simple tools to help manage small businesses. We have both worked for large organisations that spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on Accounting, Billing and Customer Relationship products. There are also some very good software packages for medium sized businesses, if you are willing to spend up to and over a thousand dollars a year. There is nothing out their for the micro to small business, unless you are a big fan of excel.Read more
