Well the simply answer is yes, you can employ staff as a sole trader.

Many people assume that you have to work alone in order to operate as a sole trader, but is not necessarily true.

Regardless of whether you’re a sole trader, limited company or partnership, if you employ someone, you’ve have to abide by the same rules.

This means you have to pay the same kind of employee benefits as a bigger company, including holiday pay and pension contributions.
