Quick question about structuring multiple businesses

I am in the process of changing accountants after multiple cock ups with my accounts so don't have anyone to ask at the mo and was hoping for a quick answer here.......
I have a limited company and I want to start a couple of other small businesses but need to keep these separate to the original business and trade under a different name. The original business has lots of contracts which are in the company name and it would be a total headache to renegotiate all these. The new businesses could be under the same name as each other but I don't want the original business associated with the new businesses.
What are my options with this? Do I need to set up a separate ltd company and have 2 separate lots of fees and accounts/ paperwork? Or is there another way? I am really keen to get going with the new biz this is really all that is holding me up! What do others do?

Why do you need lots of other entities?

Just have different trading activities as a sole trader or different activities of the company

multiple entities = multiple duplicated costs and increased risk of errors

you can have multiple sole trader income streams - and then its only one set of insurance, phone, NI, accountant etc

do not over complicate
