We recently formed a new LLC in the state of Delaware. The company is entirely web based and has 4 members located in 3 different states: California, Idaho, and Texas. The reason for forming in Delaware is because we were advised that Delaware in particular has very business friendly laws.
My question is legally do we have an obligation to obtain licenses or any other sort of permits in any other state as far as coducting business due to the geograhical lcoation of our members? Our mailing address is in Texas because thats where myself and one other member reside (its essentially a home office). We also plan on employing people on a freelance basis and these people would conceivable work from anywhere in the world but for example could be local to Texas or some other state. In this case would we need to obtain any permits or licenses in Texas, California, or Idaho?
Are there any other considerations we need to take into account in order to comply with any federal, state or local laws?
Follow up: Further reading has led me to beleive that we may need to register as a foreign entity in the other states we have members in, however, it sounds like this applies only if we are "doing business" in those states which is defined differently in each state. If we are an internet company conducting interstate business, does this apply? It seems that it would not.
