Starting a Company in USA
There is no special permit or licensing needed to create a company in the USA, therefore, someone who is not a US Citizen is legally entitled to create a company. The immigration attorneys in our office can create your company in the US.
These are the steps to creating a company in the US:
Step 1. Talk to our Immigration Lawyer
The first thing you should do is talk to one of our immigration lawyers. Our immigration attorneys will evaluate your needs and request some basic information needed to create your US company.
Step 2. Certificate of Filing/Certificate of Incorporation
Once your corporate documents are prepared by our immigration lawyer, we will get them certified by the government. This is similar to getting a birth certificate for your company. This document is either called a Certificate of Filing for an LLC, or it is called a Certificate of Incorporation for a Corporation.
Step 3. Tax ID Number
Once the company has been created, i.e., the Certificate of Filing or the Certificate of Incorporation has been issued, the next step is to apply for the Tax ID Number. A Tax ID Number, which is also known as an EIN, is a national identification number for the US company. You will use this number anytime your company opens a company bank account, hires people, etc.
Your US company will be ready to begin operations once you the company has been created (Certificate of Filing or the Certificate of Incorporation has been issued) and once you have obtained the company Tax ID Number.
1. What is an LLC?
LLC stands for Limited Liability Company, which is a type of business entity in the USA. This type of business has the power to enter contracts, hire employees, buy things, sell things, borrow money, etc. An LLC limits liabilities (debts) to third parties to the amount of capital invested in the LLC. In other words, the individual owners of an LLC are not required to pay for company debts with their personal funds.
2. What is a Corporation?
A corporation, also known as ‘Inc.’, a ‘C Corporation’ or an ‘S Corporation’, is a type of business entity in the USA. This type of business has the power to enter contracts, hire employees, buy things, sell things, borrow money, etc. A corporation limits liabilities (debts) to third parties to the amount of capital invested in the corporation. In other words, the individual owners of a corporation are not required to pay for company debts with their personal funds.
3. What is the difference between an LLC and a Corporation?
The main difference between an LLC and a Corporation is related to the way the corporate books are managed. There are also fiscal differences between the two. To determine which to use, it is recommended that you visit with an immigration attorney who is experienced in creating companies in the USA.
