Because the sole proprietorship business has no unique identity under the law, the owner often signs contracts in his or her own name. Even if the business utilises a fictional name, the sole proprietor will often have consumers make checks in the owner’s name. Sole proprietors can and frequently do blend personal and commercial property and funds, while partnerships, LLCs, and corporations cannot. Bank accounts for sole proprietorships are frequently in the name of the owner. Sole proprietors are exempt from the formalities associated with more sophisticated business structures, such as voting and meetings. lone proprietorships can file lawsuits (and be sued) in their lone proprietor owner’s name.
