    Hi everyone,

    I read some pdfs a few months (or years; I don't know exactly) ago how to start an US company outside US. Now I read some threads here and some people say starting a company in HK or Balize works also... Are there some germans who started a business in US or any other country? What's the best way to start?

    Explorer your options, use Google as an tool to find information about each jurisdiction and compare it with what it is you want to archieve. To incorporate in the US like Delaware or Nevis is very popular and you can do that easely, however, doing what everyone else does don't necessarily help you. Belize and Hong Kong are 2 totally different jurisdiction with each totally different tax laws! example, HK requires accounting etc. Belize does not. Belize and HK has a public register of companies to lookup shareholder and ownership of a company, Seychelles don't!

    Seychelles reputation may not be that good or people simply don't know very well about it so they will say Belize, Panama, Gibraltar, HK or BVI! Not to mention Cyprus where people obvious have a total misunderstanding about Cyprus and Greece and how they are connected.

    Anyway, at the end of the day it all depends on what exactly you want to do, how much privacy you want and what business you are into.

    Thank you very much! I think Delaware was something I read in the pdfs before. My thoughts: Will it be better for getting clients from US when it's an US company or do you think "quality from germany" works better? I don't know if it's like "ohh, I'll better buy something from a person from my country..."

    I don't think that it will hurt you to show the German Flag not do I believe that people will buy more just because you show them a Delaware address! Most of the people that would be interested in that particular issue will lookup your US address and easely find out that it is located (most often) at a Virtual Office mail address with hundreds if not even thousand of companies registered.
