Benefits of an LLC

An American LLC (Limited Liability Company) offers you the following advantages, regardless of the state of incorporation:

  • Tax exemption (if you are tax exempt due to your place of residence/non-residency)
  • Except for a 10-minute form, no bookkeeping is required
  • Anonymity possible due to the lack of a transparency register and no exchange of information
  • Excellent reputation for all business models, access to payment providers such as PayPal is also possible
  • Warning, garnishment and asset protection

Questions and answers

FAQ

How do I know my LLC's desired name is still available?

You can check directly in the register whether the desired name for your LLC is still available. It shouldn't exist yet and it shouldn't be too similar, regardless of the legal form. But it would work from inactive companies. If you don't want to search yourself, just send me several names in order of priority so that we can check it ourselves.

What does member-managed and manager-managed mean?

Member-Managed or Manager-Managed means how you appear in the commercial register. If you are the sole owner of the LLC and do not need any anonymity, you can choose Member-Managed and appear in the register as the owner of the company. This is important to some banks or can also be decisive for tax purposes (LLC use if you are a German resident). In the case of manager-managed LLCs, on the other hand, only the directors appear in the commercial register, the ownership level remains anonymous and is regulated internally in the operating agreement, which you will receive from me after the company has been founded. If you have more than 1 owner or if you want more anonymity, you should choose manager-managed. In principle, we will have already discussed this in the consultation etc.

Why is a passport copy required?

I also need a copy of your passport (scan/photo) in order to receive the EIN tax number in the accelerated procedure (only 2 working days). The EIN is applied for by a US citizen, as only they can receive it online without waiting. After receipt, an amendment will be made in your person (therefore a copy of your passport). This method has become necessary because it can currently take 2 to 3 months in the conventional way and you are restricted, especially when opening the bank accounts. There are no disadvantages or extra costs for you with this method. If you choose the long way, just let us know, but please don't complain if it takes longer (then no passport copy is necessary).

How do I pay the costs due?

Please transfer the due costs for the LLC either via PayPal to [email protected] or via Bitcoin to 3QkueZe8D3GzgMBiQfEnLU2yrcuSQ4Mg9e

Can you bill me for a consultation?

We can issue an invoice for advice. Please send us your desired billing address. We also set up the LLC without receiving payment, but only apply for the EIN and send you the documents once the full amount has been paid.

In which state can I incorporate the LLC?

We can potentially form the LLC for you in any American state. Only in Florida, Wyoming or Delaware is there the option of a premium address and/or office lease (required for PayPal). These 3 states are also generally recommended for non-residents when founding an LLC. The main differences between the states are their taxes (income tax, corporation tax, sales tax), which is practically irrelevant for you as a non-US citizen. Only the annual fees of the states range from $50 in Wyoming to $500 in Nevada. This is already included in our cost estimate. The only really relevant decision factor besides your own preference and reputation is above all the legislation of the states with regard to your business model. Cannabis businesses are better off settling in Colorado or Washington, gambling affiliates go to Nevada and dating/erotica providers are happy in Florida. With normal services, trade or digital products, however, it hardly makes a difference. But an address in Manhattan, Los Angeles or Miami certainly sounds better than in Wyoming or Kentucky. Here you basically have the option of simply concluding a contract with a virtual office provider yourself after we have set up the LLC for you in the state of your choice.
