Registering Your Company In The U.S.
Many Chinese entrepreneurs are looking to create or expand their business into the U.S. market. MyUSACorporation specializes in helping those entrepreneurs, and we would like to present you with several ideas to consider first.
What documents are needed?
First of all, to register a company in the U.S. you don't need to present any documents - only information. Documents would be necessary in case you want to open a bank account, but not for company registration.
Choice of State
If you plan to buy real estate property, or open a “brick and mortar” store in the U.S., it is recommended to form your company in the state where this property or store is physically located.
If your business has no physical connection to any specific state it is recommended to form your company in one of the incorporation-friendly states, such as Delaware, Wyoming, or Nevada. Majority of our clients choose either Delaware or Wyoming, due to more expensive fees in Nevada. You can see the comparison between those 3 states here: DE vs. NV vs. WY.
Choice of Entity
Foreigners can choose primarily between two types of entities: LLC and C-Corporation. LLC is the most common type of entity chosen by our foreign clients due to its simplicity, flexibility and single taxation. C-Corporation mostly chosen by young entrepreneurs looking to obtain Angel or VC financing.
