Offshore US LLC for Non-Residents of USA

USA Company

A US LLC is a hybrid between a corporation (UK Limited Company, German "GmbH", or French "SARL") and a partnership.

A United States Limited Liability Company Act was first legislated in Wyoming in 1977. Due to uncertain treatment by the Internal Revenue Service, the LLC concept was not widely accepted. In 1988 the IRS ruled that the LLC, formed under the Wyoming Law was eligible for pass-through tax treatment and thus removed the uncertainty of the tax code.

Today, all 50 states of the United States have a version of the LLC. The Delaware and Oregon Statutes are highly favored among the various versions.

Some of the advantages of forming A LLC over a Partnership or Corporation are hereunder listed.

Advantages and Features

A LLC is a mix between the positive features of a partnership and a corporation.

  • An LLC requires a minimum of two members in some states, whereas a corporation may incorporate with one shareholder.
  • It is not advisable to organize an LLC with one member due to negative tax treatment.
  • An LLC is recognized as a separate legal entity from its members.
  • In most cases, the LLC alone is liable for the company’s debts and other liabilities and therefore grants protection to its members from loss of personal assets.
  • If personal guarantees are given by a member for the debt of the LLC, that member may be called on to pay a delinquent debt.
  • Meetings of members are not a requirement for an LLC.
  • Management and control of an LLC is usually undertaken by its members, and does not require a Board of Directors.
  • Voting rights usually correspond directly with a member’s interest in profits.
  • Membership cannot be transferred or new members admitted without the consent of the majority interest.
  • LLCs’ have traditionally had a limited life. Usually about 40 years or on the death of a member.
  • LLC have a “pass-through” or “flow-through” taxation status i.e. the LLC has no Tax Liability. The profit is taxed when distributed to the members as personal income.
  • A member may be a non-resident alien in which case he does not pay US taxes on income not derived in the US through business or trade.
  • An LLC can be fully owned by non-resident aliens.
  • An LLC is organized or formed when the Articles of Organization are filed with the local office of the Secretary-of-State.
  • An operating agreement is required for an LLC. This may be verbal or in writing.
  • An LLC must file form 1065 with the IRS annually, which is just an informational return and sets out the names of each member and his share in the LLCs’ profit or loss. The IRS will review this report to ensure US resident membersproperly report their income.

Most states will not require disclosure of member information, except at the time of the Annual Report. We provide Nominee Service to protect your privacy when required.
