Hello: My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney. Please give me a moment to review your question. I may ask some questions to clarify issues.
Are you saying you have already incorporated your business in a country outside the US and want to do business in the US?
Okay. So do you want to incorporate in the US? Or incorporate outside the US and do business in the US?
Are you in the US?
I am not quite sure the connection to the US. If you are outside the US and you want to do business outside the US, what is the US connection?
Okay. So you would want to incorporate in the US. Will anyone be working in the US?
Generally, there are no restrictions on foreign ownership of a company formed in the United States. The procedure for a foreign citizen to form a company in the United States is the same as for a US resident. It is not necessary to be a US citizen or to have a green card to own a corporation or limited liability company formed in the United States.
I found a like that answers many of the questions. Would you like me to give it to you?
You may have to come to the US to open the bank account, but not the corporation.
You will have to pay US taxes on the revenues generated by the US corporation. For transfers of money outside the US, it is possible. Each bank has it own rules or forms you would need to complete.
Current US tax law even taxes moneys generated outside the US. So the corporation would be taxed on all income no matter where it is.
Do you need further assistance?
That is good. That is the next step.
THAT IS INCORRECT. There are different types of taxes. Most U.S. corporate income is subject to a 35% federal tax rate. ... What's more, companies owe U.S. tax on profits they make in the United States and ABROAD, minus whatever foreign tax they've paid
It sounds like you want an extended Q&A. I can send you premium service offer so we can continue with your question.
If you form a US corporation and that corporation earns money, the profit is taxed no matter where the revenue comes from minus what you paid on the tax in another country. So, the corporation is not double taxed. Either you pay another company's income tax, or the US income tax on money generated by the corporation.
If you need further assistance, let me know. Otherwise, I have been happy to answer all the questions you have had.
