A. A DVANTAGES   OF   THE  S OLE  P ROPRIETORSHIP Sole proprietorships are the easiest and least expensive business forms to set up.  They are also the most flexible and, depending on the circumstances, may have the lowest tax rate. B. D ISADVANTAGES   OF   THE  S OLE  P ROPRIETORSHIP The proprietor bears all of the financial risk of losses and liability, however, and the ability to raise capital is limited.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
