What is the difference between a Sole Proprietorship and a Registered Company

Firstly, it’s important to understand the difference between a Sole Proprietorship and a registered company. If your business is not currently registered, then you are operating as either a Sole Proprietor. A Sole Proprietorship means that your business functions and exists in your own personal capacity, and not as a legal entity. 

A company that has been registered with the CIPC is commonly referred to as a Private Company, and usually ends with the suffix ‘(Proprietary) Limited’ or ‘(Pty) Ltd’. Once registered, the business is treated by South African law as a separate legal entity.
