You Shouldn’t Have To Run Your Business Alone

We understand the hustle, the late nights, and the sheer determination that it takes to be a sole trader. It’s often a one-person show, where you wear every hat, handle every task, and make all the decisions.

You are the business, and you’ve nurtured it from the ground up, this means you are also responsible for the tax owed, along with any debts incurred by the business. But here’s the truth: You don’t have to do it all by yourself.

At Contracting PLUS, we’re here to be that helping hand you deserve. We understand that your time is precious, and it should be spent where it matters most – growing your business, doing what you love, and excelling at what you do best.

We specialise in simplifying and managing the tax, accounting, bookkeeping and admin side of your business, keeping you compliant. We’re here to alleviate the extra weight, so you can breathe easier and invest more time in your core business activities. Our service includes online accounting software that’s made for small businesses. It allows you to easily track and claim your expenses…imagine no more lost receipts!

Advantages of being a Sole Trader

Being a Sole Trader is indeed one of the simpler ways to start a business in Ireland and it comes with its own advantages:

  • Customer Relationship –  You build deeper, personal connections with your customers compared to a larger organisation, fostering trust and loyalty to your business as well as a better customer experience for them.
  • Total Control – You’re in charge of every decision – from financial matters to general business choices.
  • Profit Ownership – As the business owner, all profits are yours to keep.
  • Privacy and Success – Your financial affairs remain confidential, shielding your earnings from competitors and preserving your business’s inner workings.
  • Flexible Transition – Switching from a Sole Trader to a Personal Limited Company is straightforward, giving you versatility.



Operating as a Sole Trader

When operating as a Sole Trader in Ireland, it is important to keep a couple things in mind so that you can work seamlessly.

  • Registering as a Sole Trader – Once you decide to start business as a Sole Trader, you must inform Revenue of this decision. To register with Revenue, you can use their online service MyAccount. This is something we can do for you when you become a client.
  • Your Business Name – If you wish to trade under a business name as opposed to your own name, you will need to register that name with the Companies Registration Office (CRO).
  • Business Bank Account – We would always advise that you open a separate business account so that your personal and business finances are kept apart.
  • Understanding Your Tax Obligations – When considering how much you will pay in tax each year, you will need to understand that all your income is liable to tax after you account for your business expenses. Once you become a client of Contracting PLUS, all of that will be taken care of. You’ll also get a Dedicated Account Manager who will advise you on what business expenses you are eligible to claim to minimise your tax bill.
