There are 2 types of possible companies you can register in US: LLC  and Corporation (C Corp).

LLC
CORPORATIONS
LLC

LLCs are organized under an Operating Agreement, a contract between members specifying how it will be run and how costs and profits will be split between them.

CORPORATIONS

Corporations are structured on the idea that control and ownership can be separate. Owners are called shareholders and they may or may not be involved in the day-to-day operations of the company. Ownership of the business is tracked by shares, with each share corresponding to a defined portion of control of the business and entitlement to profits.

C Corps are separately taxable entities. This means that owners must file corporate tax returns (Form 1120) and pay taxes at the corporate level. This type of business also faces potential double taxation if corporate income is distributed to business owners as dividends and therefore considered personal income.

REGISTRATION PROCEDURE:

  Proposed company name

 The registered office details (if you have your own)

ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIME:

It takes us 14 business days to get everything done for you. If you have an SSN or a TIN, the process takes 2-4 business days.

It will only fasten the process if you have an SSN/ITIN.

But please take note that you might experience delay along the way because we are working with third parties. We do not have control over their policies and procedures. Rest assured we are doing our best to get updates from them.

BANK ACCOUNT SETUP

We usually set up our bank accounts with Mercury (https://mercury.co), our banking partner. It operates as a US bank but has more benefits for startups and is more convenient for foreign-owned startups. You can choose other US bank but that would mean physically visiting the US or physically visiting a branch in order to do so.

You will receive a debit card once the account has been set up.

Mercury reviews all applications. When someone applies with Mercury, they’ll first review your company documents, and your beneficial owner documents (ID and address). Then, they also review your website and the business description you provide to them.

If there’s no website or storefront (amazon, ebay, or otherwise), or a very vague/short business description, they can’t find any information about the company or founders, or any other potential inconsistencies with your application, they have to request more information from you to determine if they can offer you banking services.

These are the requirements for opening an account with Mercury.

  • EIN (which is part of our package)
  • US operations
  • Serving US customers
  • Or plans on expanding in the US market
  • Passport
Banking services are currently provided by Mercury.co – Mercury works with FDIC-insured banks, including BBVA Compass, Member FDIC, and Evolve Bank & Trust, Member FDIC, to store your deposits.
