Hello

I think this question has probably been asked before, but I thought I'd ask again anyway. I have a puzzle game in the Google play store which is totally free, but I want to make a new version that has in-app purchases for new level packs. I've done some research and it seems the best way is to register as a sole trader and possibly use your home address for the business (although I understand Google will make it public, which scares me a bit). Some of my friends have warned me that being a business brings admin and complications that you need to deal with. And it depends on how much money you make. If I go to the trouble of registering a business and then make £10 in a year it's a waste of time. Could I do it without a business and then if I'm make trillions of pounds get a business later?

Has anybody, as an individual, set up a business and made money through their apps?

What advice can you give?
Many thanks

Another thought: are there any companies who can take the money for you and pass on the proceeds, taking a cut obviously. That might be an easier option for me.

Actually I think I have found my way forward now.
