USA Incorporation

Why should one go for US Business Incorporation?

Incorporating a company in the United States market can be both rewarding and advantageous for many foreign-based businesses. As U.S. citizenship and residency are not mandatory, many people from across the world are free to start or grow and expand their business in the United States without even having to step into the country.

Compared to other US States, Delaware has a great number of company incorporations. Delaware, which is a small Mid-Atlantic U.S. state is the host for favourable business and taxation laws that make it a very commonplace for companies to incorporate or form their Limited liability company (LLC). Delaware has no state sales tax and moreover, the state’s franchise tax for small businesses is very low. There is no requirement for non-residents to pay individual income taxes in Delaware.
