In USA it is allowed to establish a business by a foreign national.
In order to register a Business in USA by a foreigner you need first to decide the type of business in which you are going to operate over there.
In the USA there is mainly three forms of business:
In a U.S. corporation type of entity, the shareholders are the owners of the said corporation. The directors are elected by the Corporation's governing shareholders and are responsible for setting objectives and policies. Those directors are called officers who are elected by people. It is only the appointed officers who are responsible for signing the company contracts. There are two types of corporation exist in the USA:
i. S Corp
The type of corporate entity (S corporation) that comes with a special advantage: it has limited liability, & without the "double taxation" of profits which gets transferred to shareholders. The S corporation was the best vehicle to shield the owners while avoiding double taxation prior to the introduction of the LLC.The "S corporation benefit" enables a company owner to use as deductions the business losses – such as those incurred during the start-up process – on their personal returns. Along with the FICA (Federal Insurance Contributions Act) levy, S corporations can also provide savings for their owners on self-employment or social security/medicare taxes.
ii. C Corp
The most growing form of company is C Corporations. They offer more flexibility in relation to the number of owners (shareholders) they can have and who can be an owner than the S corporations. Instead of a pronounced ability to subtract payroll benefits, developing corporations often favor C corporations.
This ensures that members of the corporation are only responsible for the amount of what they have invested in the corporation, personal assets such as bank accounts and real estate are protected- but illegal activity leaves an individual or business vulnerable to legal action.
It is an association of two or more people (persons being people, corporations, other associations, LLCs, trusts, or others) to carry on, as co-owners, a profitable business. Such entities are responsible for the business, including all liabilities and any loss or profit.
The persons intending to enter into a partnership make a profit and loss-sharing arrangement. The partnership is required to file an information return to the government to report what the partnership's gains and expenses were and how they have been distributed to the partners.
There are three forms of partnership in practice in the USA:
i. General Partnership
ii. Limited liability partnership
iii. Joint Venture
