A sole trader or partnership may decide, for a variety of reasons, to incorporate the business. Incorporation will give rise to a number of tax and other problems. This chapter considers these problems and how they can be avoided, or at least mitigated. It shows that the tax rules are the most important in this area, since if they are not appreciated the payment of an unexpected tax bill can cause very serious cash flow problems. These include rules on income tax, capital gains tax, VAT, and stamp duty/stamp duty land tax.
