Since 1997, NCP has helped thousands of small business
owners and entrepreneurs launch their business with confidence.
There are certain patterns of success and patterns of failure
when starting a business.
Let me ask you this: Which state is best to form an entity?
The top four choices that come to mind are Nevada, Delaware,
Wyoming and your home state. There is more flexibility if
you are not a U.S. resident living in another country and
looking to establish a business in a U.S. state. If you
are in this situation, you have a much better argument to
pick the best state for your situation and establish a complete
business presence in that state (unless you are looking to avoid a permanent establishment and only need a mail service agreement. Nevada is the most
popular choice in that situation because there are no state
corporate (under $4 million in sales) OR personal income taxes. Nevada also offer the best protection against the corporate or LLC veil being
If you choose, Wyoming, another good choice, we are able to support you also. Keep in mind, protecting the entity veil is one important subject and having your mailing address in another state is not a concern. Piercing is different from nexus, and we have done the most research on court cases over the past 21 years. Forming two entities with one address, now that gets into a different area of concern. That covers the subject of having two separate legal entities vs having one entity with multiple DBAs (doing business as).
If you are a U.S. resident and you reside in a state other
than Nevada, Delaware and Wyoming, the question becomes:
are you able to establish your business in a state like
Nevada or Wyoming that is tax free? The first answer is
yes, you can establish an entity in any state you choose.
The big question becomes: will your business be able to
establish a complete business presence in that state (Nevada
or Wyoming, in this example) and not be subject to state
corporate income taxes? The answer is: it depends upon certain
criteria. If you live in Arizona and your business is online
and you choose to form a Nevada C corporation with a Nevada
office and a Nevada bank account, that does not automatically
mean you will not be paying Arizona taxes. It depends upon
the rules of nexus. Nexus means a business presence. In
this example, it is the State of Arizona that likes to make
the argument that, since you work out of your home in Arizona,
you are doing the work FROM Arizona and therefore the Nevada
Corporation will need to register to do business in the
state of Arizona.
If you are based in the U.S. and want to establish an address in Nevada, this only makes sense if you have nexus in Nevada. In most cases, you are likely to use your address in your home state or where you have nexus. Is it possible to have two addresses? One is your physical address in your home state and another address to handle your mail, especially as an Amazon FBA seller to scan and link your permits and other important state notices, absolutely!
This is IMPORTANT: A P.O. Box in the U.S. sends one of
several messages: Either you are attempting to hide something
because you only have a P.O. Box, your business is not legitimate,
or your business is very small and does not have the money
for a real office location…all the WRONG marketing
messages to be sending to grow your business.
Most people work backwards and are looking to open a business
checking account and the banker told you that you need an
address. You may have asked if a P.O. Box would suffice.
Many times the banker will say that will be just fine or
they need a physical address like a UPS Store®. Even most banks will not accept a PO box, especially as a foreign seller. Now the banks want a U.S. personal address with a ultility bill to match.
