VARIOUS TYPES OF CORPORATIONS EXIST IN THE UNITED STATES
In the United States, investors have a wide range of corporate structures at their disposal: the branch, the general partnership, the limited partnership, the corporation, the limited liability company or LLC. Each with its own legal and fiscal specificities.
How to choose the right status? As with the creation of a company in France, choosing the right legal status depends on the type of activity you plan to undertake (whether you are operating alone or with employees), the financing of your project, the number of partners and the presence or absence of shareholders… and the pros and cons of each possible legal form. But unlike in France, the location of the company in the United States is of great importance from a legal point of view.
TARGETING THE RIGHT STATE: AN IMPORTANT FACTOR FOR A SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTATION
In the United States, legal structures are governed by the law of the state of incorporation, and each state has its own corporate law.
Moreover, the state of incorporation is not always the state in which a business operates. This can mean additional costs associated with business registration, which also differ from state to state. For example, Delaware is the state chosen by many companies as their domicile for legal and tax advantages, including a flexible corporate code and no income tax.
