    i have recentely started my new business, want to make it official. I have a website. But still need to register as a sole trader. I am thinking of getting a PO Box address as i am currently working from home and do not wish to post my home address. Can anyone give me any advice on what other legal things or any type of advice i should follow before i register and get a PO Box or where is it the cheapest to get another address

    A PO Box is a good, inexpensive way to avoid your home address.
    That's what I do. You probably want to get a fictitious name or D.B.A. name so you can get a checking account in your business name.
    Otherwise, keep track of all income and expenses for tax purposes.
    When you start to make money, you probably need to make estimated tax payments.

    You really aren't giving enough information for people to be able to answer your question. Your question is too vague. Why don't you read a few library books about starting business and this will get you on the right track.

    I think that you can search on Google to find out all the details that you want

    I don't think PO BOX is allowed to register for a business
