Opening a company in USA as a foreigner: Peculiarities of entrepreneurship

Before registration of a company in USA, entrepreneurs should familiarize themselves with the peculiarities of US taxation. It consists of two levels:

  • Local level. Every state sets tax rates independently, and in some of them, the corporate tax is not charged at all.
  • Federal level. The federal income tax is charged irrespective of the taxation features of each state. It must be paid by all US companies without exception.

Legal form directly affects some aspects of US corporate taxation:

  • All corporations (C-corporations) must pay tax on total income, including profits earned outside the United States.
  • LLCs pay tax only on income generated within the United States. The exception is companies that have opted for the identical corporation tax system.

The cost of registering a company in the USA and a ready-made company

Our experts individually calculate how much it costs to open a business in the USA for a client. During the calculation, they take into account numerous factors, business specifics, company structure, and so on. Therefore, it is impossible to say at once how much it will cost a businessman to open company in USA.

The sale of ready-made companies is an option that rarely interests entrepreneurs. The reason is that the cost of starting a company in the USA and the price of services for the change of ownership are almost the same. Therefore, incorporating a company in the US that does not conduct actual business is not feasible.

What company formation in USA for non-residents is available?

Today, it is possible to open a new company in USA in two legal forms - corporation and LLC. Each business form has features that all business people who have decided to start a business in America should consider.

Before opening a business in the USA, non-residents should remember that in S-corporations, founders and shareholders cannot be foreigners.

Businessmen from other countries can open an LLC in the USA with the following types of taxation:

  • Single-member LLC. The firm must pay tax as a sole proprietor.
  • Multi-owner LLC (Partnership). Taxes must be paid by the owners, while the company does not pay them on its behalf. However, if the owners are non-US residents, they must first obtain a tax number and then register with the IRS. They will then pay the tax on their behalf.

How to open business in USA as a foreigner: Form BE-13
