Types of Business Ownership
- The word proprietor means owner

- Proprietorships are the most common type of business

- East to set up and run

Owner makes all of the deisions and keeps all of the profits

- Proprietorships are limited by the ability and resources of their owner

- Owner takes on all of the risks and is responsible for all debts

The owner must pay all debts even if they are greater than the amount the owner invested
- Unlimited liability
- Partnerships benefit from bringing more resources to the business than the single owner can

Partners share decision-making, risks, and profits

Partnerships (like proprietorships) also have the problem of unlimited liability
