The sole proprietorship is the simplest business form under which one can operate a business. It simply refers to a person who owns the business and is personally responsible for its debts. A sole proprietorship can operate under the name of its owner or it can do business under a fictitious name. The fictitious name is simply a trade name and it does not create a legal entity. You do not have to take any formal action to form a sole proprietorship. As long as you are the only owner, this status automatically comes from your business activities.
