LLC company hiring abroad

Asked by: Thomas  — 12 November, 2012

Hi, I currently own a LLC in New York (taxed as a S-Corp) and looking to hire developers from India. Can I hire them as full-time employees or only as contractors?

Are there any legal or tax implications for doing either? Also, would cost just be charged as an expense?

To hire someone as W2 employee that person needs to have an SSN and proper working authorizations. If your developers are in India you would hire them as foreign contractors, and deduct it as expense.

I would recommend you to seek an advise of a CPA on how those expenses would be deducted (specifically).
