Foreign citizen forming a corporation in the USA
The process of opening a company in the United States with the help of MyUSAcorporation.com website is very simple and involves only two pages of information that you have to fill out - mostly your contact details and some information about the company you would like to open.
As for the costs, the costs will depend on the the type of company - corporation or limited liability company (LLC) - and the state in which you choose to open it. I suggest that you consider opening an LLC in the State of Wyoming. An LLC is a great form of a legal entity that grants the owners the same limited liability protection as a corporation, but has fewer operating restrictions and may have some tax advantages. As we are not tax professionals, we cannot give you detailed tax advice, so you should consult a qualified adviser who can help with that. I recommended Wyoming as the venue for your new company because it is a state with very business friendly laws and no state tax. It is also easy and cheap to maintain a company in Wyoming.
The cost of forming a Wyoming LLC for a foreign citizen with the help of MyUSAcorporation.com is approximately $583. You can begin the process by following this link: "Form an LLC in Wyoming".
