As a sole trader is it possible to employ people part time on an hourly rate of pay. I have looked on tiger and found out information regarding the basic rate of pay and the change. But to employ someone do I just need employers liability insurance and it doesn't matter if I am a sole trader?

Thank you for any help

Hi Dan,

Yes, there's no problem employing someone if you are a sole trader. The Business Link website has an interactive tool specifically for people who are taking on their first employee(s):
