Hello I'm Olivia and I'm new here . I've got a couple of little properties and now I'm going to start a little company (bookkeeping). I have heard it is better to operate as a company/trust but I am getting really confused. It would be so much easier & cheaper to operate as a sole trader. Does operating as a company/trust really protect my assets that much more than as a sole trader? I mean I could still get sued as a person anyway right?
