    If you're a sole trader, your personal assets (e.g. Car, house etc.) are at risk if something goes wrong. If something goes wrong with a limited company, you can only loose what you invest (your personal assets aren't at risk) so you've got less to risk.

    Hi! I agree with your point for sure, however the question is worth 3 marks and this is probably1 mark, any idea on how to get the other 2 marks?
