    I am going to make my company international. And want to start with US. I am not currently living in the US. So which way is safer and cheaper to start a LLC in the US, not being in the US?

    In order to register an LLC in the United States you will need a physical address in the state where you are registering the LLC (P.O. Box will not work) and a registered agent. If you do not have a physical address in the state where you are registering the LLC the best way to go about setting it up would probably be to use a registering service such as legalzoom or llc . com

    If you aren't a US citizen, it needs to be a C-corp.

    They never do. It's an IRS issue, not a state issue.
