I am a US resident. A European (Italian) consulting company, that is interested in my services, wants to expand with a branch office in the US. They also want me to participate as a partner in the US branch. The US branch would not be able to directly generate revenue for one-two years, but basically act as a support to the other business' core activities. For this reason, I, and other US employees that I envision hiring, should be supported with a stipend. The funds for this stipend come from the revenue generated are all billed in Europe.
Given all these caveats, what is the best approach to form a US branch?
Hi, I have registered for a LLC in Wyoming, but need to apply for an EIN to do business, I have a SSN a long time ago when I was still in college. Can I use that to register for an EIN? (but I don't live in the state or have any working visa) or should I apply for an EIN without SSN and register for a ITIN instead?
Thanks for the advice!
I have a Canadian company doing e-commerce business to the States. My operation is in Canada but my customer base is located in US. My customers experience problem when they pay by debit card because their banks do not let their payment go through because my merchant account is a Canadian one. To solve this problem I need to be a US merchant. To qualify as a US Merchant, it requires a FID#. I read about registering a LLC in Wyoming to obtain a FID # or EIN. What is the tax implication? Can I sell my products at sell price to my LLC in Wyoming to have zero profit. Does it raise any legal problem? Will this practice be acceptable in respect of Federal Tax? Any suggestion as how to get a FID / EIN #?
