    Explanation
    Franchising offers numerous benefits, such as the ability to benefit from national advertising, start a business with reduced risk, and leverage the reputation of the franchise. However, one drawback of franchising is that franchisees must adhere to the rules and standards set by the franchise. This lack of flexibility restricts their ability to make independent decisions and operate the business according to their own preferences.

    Explanation
    Unlimited liability refers to a situation where the owners of a firm are personally responsible for the company's debts and may have to use their personal assets to pay off the debts. This means that if the firm cannot meet its financial obligations, the owners can be held personally liable and may have to bear the financial burden by using their own money. This is in contrast to limited liability, where the owners' liability is limited to the amount they have invested in the company.

      Because your staff will like you more

    Correct Answer
    B. If the company goes bust they do not have to repay debts out of their own pocket
    Explanation
    Limited liability is beneficial for a company because it ensures that the owners or shareholders are not personally responsible for the company's debts. If the company goes bankrupt or faces financial difficulties, the owners' personal assets are protected, and they are not required to repay the debts from their own pockets. This provides a sense of security and reduces the financial risk for the owners, encouraging investment and entrepreneurship.

This level of personalization and specialization often leads to increased customer satisfaction and loyalty, ultimately contributing to the success of the sole trader.
