set up an LLC in USA

Set up an LLC company in Florida, Miami, Orlando or set up a business in Delaware?

Why create a company in Florida, Miami, Orlando… and not in Delaware?

Whether in Miami or Orlando, entrepreneurs from large European cities are particularly fond of the West Coast of the United States to set up their business. The state of Florida (where the cities of Miami, Tampa, etc. are located) offers a good international image, which favors the establishment of a company in this region. In addition, you will be able to open a bank account for your entity in the USA.

Why choose LLC in Florida rather than Delaware?

There are several reasons why you might want to form an LLC in Florida rather than Delaware. One is that Florida has no income tax, which can save you money if your entity generates a large amount of income. Another reason is that Florida is one of the states that has more flexible rules for LLCs than Delaware. For example, in Florida, you only need one member to create it, whereas in Delaware, you need at least two. You also do not need to register your business in Delaware if you choose to register it in Florida.

One of the disadvantages of setting up in Florida is that it is not considered an offshore company. Therefore, you will not receive the same tax benefits as if you were to set it up in a jurisdiction like the Cayman Islands. However, if you operate primarily in the United States, Florida is still a good choice for your Limited Liability Company.

Many French people, when talking about tax havens, automatically think of Delaware.

The advantages of creating a company in Florida and opening a bank account

Starting your business in Florida has many advantages. The State of Florida offers an ideal setting for doing business. Florida has a good image and a favorable environment for businesses because it offers many tax advantages (especially regarding taxes). In addition, starting your own business gives you access to a large market. Orlando is a great place to start your business. The city is home to a large number of businesses and offers a variety of business resources (co-working space, etc.).

Once you have gathered all the documents, decided on the headquarters of your company, you can move on to the banking stage.

Many people want to know if it is possible to open a bank account in the US without being a resident or US citizen. The answer is YES, it is possible to open one with Mercury or Chase for example.

However, opening a personal bank account requires proof of residence in the USA (water, electricity, telephone bill, etc.) even if you are not a resident/citizen of the USA.

Starting your own business in Florida is a great way to get started in business.
