Process for LLC registration:
Through your Pakistani passport/photo ID you can register your company. After you get your LLC you will have to file for an EIN number. An EIN number is necessary, it is like a social security number for your business in the US. Outside of the US, there may be a wait time of around 2-3 months due to the pandemic for that. You will also need to open up a bank account. For that, you have two options;
1. Physical banks, which require your or your partner’s presence on the spot (Note: Your partner’s name should be mentioned in the company’s documents).
2. You can apply at digital banks like Mercury without visiting the place. Mercury is also providing debit cards.
Which State to Register in your LLC?
You can register your company in Delaware, Wyoming, and Hawaii (these US states have low tax rates, normally 4 to 6%). For Amazon wholesale FBA, I’ll suggest you go with Texas or Florida. The whole procedure can be done on your laptop via Anydesk. And all the payments can be made via your card.
For the last 2 years, Wyoming and Delaware were the best to create LLCs but now they have become saturated. From now on the best states for LLC registration are Texas and Florida.
Texas has a high cost for first-time registration as compared to Florida but it has no yearly renewal fee while Florida has $128. Moreover, Texas has a lower tax percentage as compared to Florida. You can also contact me for LLC registration.
