In some instances where required, we will use an online notarization service to validate your identity as the company founder or representative. To complete this simple process we use a online notarization platform provided by our partner, NotaryCam, the online notary public. This is not required for citizens of the U.K, Australia and Canada.
U.S. Business Address
To open a company in the United States, you are required to have a US business address in the state of incorporation. Once step 1 has been completed, we will obtain a registered business address for you in the state of your company formation. This address serves as a business address and registered mail forwarding address.
Filing Documents with State
For step 3 in your company formation, the filling of incorporation or formation documents with the state or federal government is required. As part of our U.S. company formation services, we will file these documents on your behalf and work with the state to have your company formally and legally registered.
U.S. Business Bank Account
Foreigners (non-U.S. residents or citizens) can open a U.S. business bank account. We have partnered up with an online bank that specializes in providing U.S. business banking services to international non-resident owners of U.S. companies that we refer our clients to as part of our company formation service.
Obtaining an EIN Tax ID
An EIN Tax ID is your unique company tax identification number that must be obtained from the IRS when a new company is formed. An EIN is required by U.S. Banks to open a business bank account. As part of our U.S. business formation services we will obtain an EIN on your behalf and an EIN confirmation letter.
Registered Agent Services
If you’re forming a corporation or a limited liability company in a U.S. state, by law, you’ll need to appoint a 'registered agent' for your business to receive legal mail or summonses. You are also required to provide the agent’s name and address on the formation documents you file with the state. We provide registered agent services in any of the 50 states.
Bylaws and Resolutions
Bylaws and resolutions are the initial decisions of your corporation’s board of directors and basic "operating rules" of your corporation, as is an 'operating agreement' where the company structure in an LLC and there is membership based control. As part of our U.S. company formation services we will provide initial drafts of these documents on your behalf for you to execute as legally binding documents.
After your company is approved by the state and once digital copies of your documents have been provided online, as part of our service for international clients, where you select the option for a corporate kit, we will deliver your business formation documents, company binder and seal and any additional selected supplements to you anywhere in the world as part of our service offering.
