Dear Bala,

First of all as a Canadian you can register an LLC or C-Corporation (not S-Corporation), and I would generally recommend forming an LLC, as it allows to do almost anything you might need from a company with minimal formalities.

When forming your LLC you could use a Canadian address as the business address, and this address can also be used to obtain your company’s Federal Tax ID (EIN).

Hope that answers your question.
