Please I need a clarification? Before I create provisioning profile and certificate, I have to register and pay as a developer. Now when i started the process of enrollment, I came across situation where I have to choose whether am an INDIVIDUAL/SOLE PROPRIETOR or ORGANISATION.

I learnt when i register as an individual, my name will be displayed in the app store(Like First Name, Last Name) Meanwhile I have a registered name for my sole proprietorship which I will like to be in the app store just as i did in the Google Play store.

Is this possible when i choose INDIVIDUAL and have my registered business name shown in the appstore?

I want that also but it is not possible according to appple. Your individual name has to be displayed not your business name if you are not an organisation.

If your company is a sole proprietorship, you can't register as an organization. And As I know, if you registering as an individual you have to use your name instead of business name.
I don't think there are downsides/limitations except for example to publish VPN apps you need an organization account, you can't publish them with individual accounts. There may be some other examples like this.
Ok. I have a registered business as SOLE PROPRIETOR with a business name. In this regard, can i go ahead and register as an organisation.

Enrolling as an organisation and as an individual, is there any downside/limitation to them as well as opportunities?
