Sole trader details

I am a sole trader selling ebooks online. I do not want to use my real name on my website and hoped to use a nom de plume. I know this sounds suspicious, but I wish to safeguard the privacy of my family given my husband’s occupation.

Do I have to reveal my real name and address? Or, could I use an alias and a PO Box address legally?

You do need to provide a name and address to comply with the applicable law.

There are various pieces of legislation that may be relevant.

See in particular:

A PO Box is not normally considered to be a "geographic address".
