    Depends if you plan to do alot of commercial work I suppose and being vat registered aswell or you just want to take the risk out of going bankrupt like so many do.

    If your limited, and the business goes into debt, you dont lose your house, you just lose your business. Thats my take on it, but dont really know. Was told by someone, that businesses like the idea that they are dealing with a business " limited" and not a sole trader " one man and a van", so I was told. Im in a council house, so I think I'm ok, if anything drastic happens business wise. You do need a roof over your head.
