The correct answer is Sole Proprietorship.
A sole proprietor is the simplest form of commercial structure. Anyone can be a sole proprietor and there is no legal basis for this business form. The term sole proprietor simply refers to someone who is engaged in some type of business and who is responsible for the debts of that business. You can run a sole proprietor under your own name, or under a "do business as" (DBA) name, such as Manny's Sandwiches. The DBA name is just a business name and does not create a legal entity separate from the sole owner.
A sole proprietor remains a very popular commercial form because it is simple, easy to create and has minimal costs. All that is needed is to register your name and your DBA is applicable, and pay local licenses if necessary. Once this is done, you will be ready for business. The disadvantage of a sole proprietor is that the sole proprietor is responsible for all commercial debts, and there is no legal shield against lawsuits. If a sole proprietor loses a lawsuit, he or she is responsible for paying the sentence with their own money, which could put the savings or even your home at risk.
