Nevada is among the most popular U.S. states for registering and doing business, including international business. The local laws provide low tax rates while providing a high level of asset protection. Regarding taxation, the only thing to consider is the federal income tax (21%).
Entrepreneurs from all over the world consider Nevada a final destination for investment in e-commerce, tourism, and gambling. Registering a company in Carson City, Las Vegas, or any other city in the state can bring many benefits, including the following.
Advantages of Nevada as a business registration jurisdiction
If you intend to start a business in Nevada, the decision could potentially be beneficial because of the following advantages of the jurisdiction:
- developed economy;
- ease of incorporation of companies, including non-residents;
- confidentiality of ownership of property as well as companies in Nevada;
- developed infrastructure;
- the low tax burden on businesses;
- no mandatory reporting and record-keeping requirements.
Forms of legal and business presence
If you plan to open a business in Nevada, it is possible to do so through one of these most common options:
- A limited liability company is a type of business that can be registered even by one person, including non-residents. It is the simplest form of business, in which its owners do not bear any responsibility beyond the funds they have contributed. Therefore, there are no requirements for this business’s share capital requirement.
- C corporation is a joint-stock company designed to attract large amounts of financial resources and can be established even by one member. The owners’ liability of the shares is limited to the value of the shares. These shares can be resold to third parties without conditions and offered on the stock market. The disadvantage of this type of corporation is double taxation – income is taxed at the corporate and individual shareholder levels.
