- I'm from Europe, don't plan to move to the USA
- I will open an ONLINE store ONLY (no physical stores)
- Goods will be imported from Europe
- Shipping will be handled by the fulfillment company
I am unsure which way to go when starting a company:
a) LLC OR C CORPORATION? I'm leaning towards C corporation because I feel we'll look more trustworthy. Does C corp. mean a lot more work for me as the owner or just a little bit more? How about the costs? Is LLC an option at all since I cannot be taxed on a personal level since I'm not a US citizen? AFAIK LLC is not taxed with corporate tax, but rather the owner pays income tax?
b) WHICH STATE? Does it really matter, money-wise (tax-wise)? As far as privacy issues go, I hear that Delaware and Nevada are a good choice? I suppose I don't have to worry about the sales tax since I won't have a nexus because of online-only presence?
I am looking for the most cost effective and long-term solution.
