What you need to know, if you want to do business in United States?
Taxation. Before doing business in USA, please go through this information. In the United States there are two basic types of companies with different ways of taxation.
- First is Corporation (C-Corp), which pays tax on corporate income at both federal and state levels. If the company wants to pay dividends and has yet to pay withholding tax on dividends, which is also a federal state. Taxes of that type of company are very high. This type of company can be optimized by asking the US tax authority to allow us to pay taxes only on a personal level (this creates an S-Corp). This, if a company earns a hundred thousands.
- Second basic type is a Limited Liability Company (LLC), where earnings are taxed directly to the shareholders in proportion to their ownership of the company. USA "S" corporations are not taxable entities. This means they're not required to file state income tax returns after the first year resulting in saved tax dollars.
