Advantages of Forming a Tax-Free US Company
The U.S. LLC
The U.S. Limited Liability Company (LLC) has become a crucial tool for international tax planning, thanks to its “flow-through” taxation benefits. While it offers liability protection similar to a U.S. corporation, it enjoys partnership-like tax treatment. Essentially, the LLC itself pays no income tax, as all income and expenses are directly attributed to the owners.
By establishing and utilising a U.S. LLC in conjunction with an offshore company, you can combine the advantages of both onshore and offshore business worlds. A well-structured LLC allows you to bypass the increased scrutiny typically associated with offshore companies while enjoying the credibility of a U.S. company and the tax benefits of an offshore entity.
How It Operates
For a U.S. LLC to be tax-free in the United States, it must meet specific criteria: it should have no income or expenses within the U.S. and must be owned by a foreign company or a non-U.S. citizen residing outside the U.S.
Once established, you conduct business with your U.S. company counterpart by exchanging invoices and payments. The U.S. LLC then deposits the funds into its bank account, which is subsequently transferred to your offshore company’s account. This allows you to use or invest the funds without incurring taxes.

A Tax Haven for Non-U.S. Residents
Benefits of Incorporating in Florida
Let’s address the tax scenario in the USA when you consider moving forward with a U.S. LLC Company in Florida.
While many people recognise Florida as the headquarters for numerous major U.S. companies, they might not be aware that the United States has evolved into one of the world’s most attractive jurisdictions for non-U.S. citizens, courtesy of the Florida Limited Liability Company (LLC).
The LLC is a unique business entity, combining aspects of a corporation and a limited partnership. For income tax purposes, a Florida LLC is entirely disregarded by U.S. tax authorities. It pays only one tax, the annual $150 Florida franchise tax.
An LLC’s profits are treated as “pass-through” income, flowing directly to the individual owner. U.S. citizens who file a personal tax return have these profits added to their taxable income and are taxed at their individual rates. For non-U.S. citizens not required to file a U.S. tax return, the advantage is that the LLC’s profits pass through to the owner without being subject to U.S. taxation. If necessary, the owner can voluntarily report the LLC’s income in their home country. It’s important to note that ownership in a Florida LLC is entirely private and is not disclosed, even to the state of Florida.
For various types of businesses, incorporating in your home state or country makes sense. However, an internet-based business operates differently, as it is accessible to a global audience. You may reside in one state, while your website is hosted in another, your bank is in a different state, and your customers are spread across the world.
By incorporating in Florida, you maintain the status of a borderless company. You are not operating in Florida, and thus, you do not incur Florida taxes. You are merely registered in the state, not engaged in business activities. Consequently, your corporation is liable for federal income taxes or, in the case of a Florida LLC, may be entirely tax-free.
With a Florida corporation or LLC, your business can be headquartered anywhere worldwide, or even without a fixed location. Florida does not require your business address, and it is not interested in the names and addresses of your company’s shareholders, officers, or directors. The only address we need is a shipping address for sending your company documents and subsequent franchise tax notices. Our address serves as your company’s “registered office” in Florida, and we forward all official correspondence related to your business.
