U.S. LLCs & Corps – Non-U.S. Residents

U.S. Entity Formation Services

Are you an e-commerce seller looking to expand to the U.S. on multiple platforms?

You’re at a right place

Our U.S. Packages will Help You Sell on U.S. Marketplaces and Avoid U.S. Tax Surprises.

  • If you don’t set up everything with your new U.S. company in the correct sequence of events, with the address and banking all lined up, you will be very unhappy with costly delays.
  • Our strategy sessions with our CEO, Scott Letourneau, apply as a 100% credit towards your U.S. formation. Gain clarity on which state, entity, and your U.S. tax responsibilities before your formation.
  • Hence, you minimize any U.S. issues and protect your profits. That also means avoid your U.S. account from behind frozen (see recent California case).
  • The real damage is not selecting the best state to protect your directors or foreign ownership. It comes from huge taxation mistakes that cost a fortune in profits.
  • Getting the right sequence of events from entity formation, EIN, to the right address, resale number, along with ongoing support with a fast-changing tax climate is what sets us apart.
  • We have the most experience with foreign sellers (since 1997) and vetted partners and resources to help you launch with confidence.

  • U.S. Basic Virtual Address Service 12-Months

    U.S. Basic Virtual Address Service

    ur U.S. virtual premium address, scan sales tax permits, merchant statements & other virtual business mail for timely execution. What makes us different is that our experienced team with every notification you are likely to receive from the IRS or state tax agency. Either we can direct you, or we have a referral partner that will know your steps to stay in compliance with your U.S. business. Our service in our packages includes one entity name and one personal name. If you have multiple entity names, we have an upgraded version for $67/month that includes UNLIMITED business and personal names. Includes a real physical address that will work for both U.S. bank account options. Our Las Vegas U.S. bank option provides a lease agreement if required by your merchant provider. If a local utility bill is needed for a merchant account, that is separate. It is critical as an e-commerce seller on Amazon.com, Walmart, eBay, or other platforms that you receive your mail scanned to you on a timely basis. Sales tax compliance is especially important after the U.S. Supreme Court Wayfair vs. South Dakota decision in June 2018. Even with marketplace nexus, there are a few remaining states that require sales tax registrations. If you sell on a non-marketplace such as Shopify, you may need to register for sales tax in multiple states based upon only 200 transactions. Sales tax registrations and the mail that comes, as a result, must be handled to minimize late fees on sales tax and actual filings that are due. Even if you don't expect much mail, our service options will support you to have both a premium U.S. address plus have the occasional piece of email scanned to you for notification. You will want the IRS letter to come to our address after we apply for your EIN. Our online banking service requires this letter to open your U.S. bank account. Our team will scan or scan and forward your mail based upon your requests. Fees to scan or forward are separate.*

  • U.S. Bank Account Service (No Travel Option & No California)

    U.S. Bank Account Service-Deposit is separate

    You will receive two U.S. bank options. One without travel to the U.S., and one with travel. Non-travel option - we now have a non-travel full U.S. bank account option also. You will receive a separate email with details. This online banking option has no monthly bank fee. It is a fully functioning U.S. bank account with a debit card, and the ability for an ACH pull (it is not Payoneer). Here are the details on our travel option- NCP will send over the entity information required for the U.S. bank account, including which states to travel to open the bank account. The excellent news is Las Vegas is one of them. All partners are required to be at the bank to open the account. The deposit into the account is separate. A $100 deposit is required. If either bank account option requires a lease agreement in the future due to compliance by the bank, we are able to provide that as a part of our U.S. Virtual Address Service. Even though others may be able to set up a bank account, many get shut down within the year with more compliance required.

  • Video on U.S. Tax Treaties by U.S. Tax Attorney

    Video on U.S. Tax Treaties by U.S. Tax Attorney

    This training will cover the basics of U.S. tax treaties and the importance of filing protective tax returns and the 8833 disclosure form.

  • Federal Tax ID Number Obtained (Includes 8832 Filing, if Required)

    Federal Tax ID (EIN) Obtainment Service

    Businesses are required to have a Federal Tax ID Number, also called an employer identification number (EIN). With NCP's Tax ID Obtainment Service, we will obtain your company's EIN from the IRS once your business formation is approved by the state, and you have returned via email the signed SS-4 application.

    Since you are outside the U.S. the IRS has changed the process, and we will need to fax the SS-4 application to the IRS, and it will take about 6-10 business days to secure the EIN. Your signature is required, and the form may be emailed back to our office.

    [Key point]: The SS4 must be completed properly. Especially on line 9a, which must line up with the correct U.S. tax return.

    Mistakes on the SS4 are complicated to fix with the IRS. If the owner of your US LLC is a foreign entity, we will need a separate EIN and to file form 8832.

    Our team has a complex spreadsheet internally that has been reviewed by tax firms to ensure you are going to file the correct U.S. tax returns related to your business situation.

Our 10 Complete Steps

Ordering FAQs

What are some of the key questions I should ask before and during a U.S. entity formation?

Our process to help you form a U.S. company is the most complete. We understand you may not know all the questions to ask. That is why we will bring them up with our training and double-check your choices.

For example, should an LLC be managed by managers or members? It seems simple, yet it is an important question that most online companies get wrong, and it will impact your business on many levels.

Here is a list of considerations that we recommend you evaluate during our entity formation process.

How do you help me determine which state and entity are best and my U.S. tax responsibilities for my situation?

Our U.S. entity packages do not require you to know which state or entity before you get started. We have two options for support.

One (our most popular) is to schedule a 45-minute strategy call with an email summary with our CEO for $397.00 to obtain a special recommendation for your situation.

Your $397.00 investment will apply as a full credit towards our U.S. entity packages when you are ready to move forward with your formation. Learn more here about this one-on-one strategy call.

Our second option is to schedule a free call with our team, review our packages and current pricing, and select a package to get started. Go to the link at the bottom of this page to schedule your free call.

Our packages include a video training by our CEO for the most popular options, U.S. entity structure, best state and why, and what your U.S. tax return responsibilities would be with each option.

Our team will also review your submission after getting started to ensure it lines up with our SS4 application and your U.S. tax return responsibilities.

When do I pay the state filing fee for my U.S. entity formation?

After step 2 below, when you submit your web form with your type of entity and state. Your state and entity type will determine your state fees, and our team will send you a separate email for payment.

The good news is you don’t need to know which state and type of entity before you start with NCP. Our video training will help guide you through your best options.

How much stock will be issued (for corporations)?

We will authorize the minimum amount of stock for each state. Some states have a higher filing fee based upon the number of shares and par value. Nevada, for example, at 75,000 shares at no par value equates to a $75 state filing fee, their lowest level.

If you have a special request for more stock to be authorized and a different par value, we will send you a separate price quote before we file your corporation.

How long will it take to form my LLC or Corporation?

The time to file your LLC or Corporation will depend upon two factors; first, which state, and second, how fast you provide us the information on our step 2 & 3 of our process.

Some states like Nevada and Wyoming can be filed within 24-48 hours of steps 2 & 3 being completed; others like California may take up to 2-3 weeks. States do offer expedited options in most cases, if necessary.

Update: An EIN number for a U.S. entity where the responsible party does not have an SSN or ITIN, will take much longer due to COVID.

What happens after I submit my order?

After you submit payment, you will go to our thank you page to our next steps link to complete our web form. This link includes our special training and tips on which state and entity are best.

If you miss the link on the thank you page, we also send you a welcome email with the same link to get started.

Please check your junk folder for an email from support@launchwithconfidence.com (our NCP brand) if you don’t see the welcome email within 10-15 minutes of payment.

Our leading brand, Nevada Corporate Planners, Inc. (NCP), will show up on your merchant account receipt.

Do you help with foreign qualification services?

Yes. If your entity has physical nexus in another state and it is required to foreign qualify or register we have separate services to help you with that process also. Learn more at this link.

Do you help with the filing of any U.S. tax returns that may be required?

Yes. We work with a group of top CPA firms (and tax attorneys) that specialize in filing U.S. tax returns that may be required. That may include the 1120 or 1120F protective return, along with the 8833 treaty disclosure, or form 5472, 1040NR, along with the W-7. Tax returns fees are separate from our U.S. entity formation packages.

How is working with Sales Tax System different than other online LLC and corporate formation companies?

Compare us to other online LLC or Corporate formation companies is like comparing setting up an Amazon account to running an Amazon business.

The other online companies will help you file the articles and obtain an EIN, but they cannot connect all the crucial dots with U.S. tax treaties, sales tax requirements, ACH pull, protective tax returns with the right CPA firms…

If you are looking for a company with a long track record (24 years) who works and hire experts behind the scenes to solve U.S. tax issues that you don’t even know about, you are at the right place.

It is important to note that we have had to clean up many “basic filings,” and our tax partners had to deal with years of IRS issues for these clients, which ended up costing them 100X what they paid for the “basic U.S. LLC” formation.
