Hi,
Recently sold a hobby website of mine and I'm currently reviewing the contract (purchase agreement) before i sign it. However, the buyer put my personal name down as the Seller. I can change this, no problem, but my question is: what should I use in place of my name, if any, for maximum protection? I am self-employed and have a sole proprietorship. Should I put my business in place of my name?

This is just a basic question, but thought I'd get it double checked here.

You might want to check with a lawyer.

Thans guys, but I got it squared away. We had a corporation set up a while back, I just forgot about that, lol. I've now put the name of the corporation on the contract instead of my personal name. More taxes to pay, oh well, at least I'll have peace of mind.

You "forgot" about a corporation? How while back?

Bad choice of words. I have a corporation and closed the checking account for that about 2 years ago. I never dissolved the corporation, so I'm going to open the checking account again in the coming days.
