    Hey all,

    Has anyone had any success with any services which will register a company llc in US and get a business bank account setup with the likes of BOFA or Chase?

    Im trying to search abiut but all these sites i come across look a little 1990s lol

    Please hit me with some info you have been through this.

    Regards
    GN

    I'd advise you to fly out there and work with a bricks and mortar company.
    I know what you mean by all the sites looking 1990s but that's financial people
    for you.
    Look for a Delaware accountant with a phone number and physical address.
    They'll be able to point you in the right direction.

    Look for an incorporating lawyer to set it up for you. Essentially he would be acting as your agent. Better than getting a partner who might run off with money he is "legally" entitled to...

    Deleware is the most Inc-friendly state. No sales taxe, etc..

    Just google "incorporate in deleware" or something similar and you'll find loads of info. There's legit companies that will give you an address, account, and everything.

    Lawyers accept foreign bank transfers and can run your debit card quickly through for you as well. Essentially, acting as your agent, they can open a bank account for you in your company's name, without you being present. Add internet banking to it, and voila, you're set.

    Well basically, a Delaware corp is differentiated from LLC's incorporated in other US states due to low regulation and taxation upon them. A lot of big US entities are Delaware corporations, just as a lot of bit UK entities are set-up in the channel islands.

    Unlike dealing with other offshore's however, you're looking at a much safer climate being in the U.S. as oppose to say Seychelles.

    I'm not sure, it says on the website that a bank account is available in the sign-up, if I were you I'd call them on 0808 168 3676 and see what they say.

    Only use Cyprus banks? Are you looking at the right page? In regards to US banks, it says they have connections with UBS, which I would take to mean that they have a fast application process with them.

    At least that's how it was with Barclays when I registered my LTD through them.
