Hi Vlad,appreciate your additional information.Generally nonresident aliens are conducting business activities in the US via the LLC or a corporation registered in the US.A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a business structure allowed by state statute.Each state has its own business law - and Delaware just one option while that is a very popular option.

Depending on elections made by the LLC and the number of members, the IRS will treat an LLC as either a corporation, partnership, or as part of the LLC owner s tax return (disregarded entity).So - if that is a single member LLC - all income and deductions must be reported on your individual tax return.However - the LLC with several members is classified as a partnership.That is an US partnership - and because of that - that is an US taxable entity.The partnership files its own tax return - form 1065 - but do not pay income tax - instead all taxable income is passed to partners.So if that is a single member LLC - all income and deductions will be reported on YOUR individual tax return - schedule C.Regardless operation in foreign countries - you need to verify business and employment laws in each country separately.In general - if the LLC will operate in any country - it will be required to register there and when hires employees - it will be required to pay employment taxes.All expenses will be deductible on your US tax return as long as your LLC will operate according to local laws.Questions?
