How to open an LLC in the United States from Perú

If you are a Peruvian entrepreneur with international ambitions, considering the creation of an LLC in the United States can be a strategy you should know about. LLCs offer a combination of flexibility, legal protection, and tax benefits. If you are interested in learning how to open an LLC from Peru without the need to leave the comfort of your home, this article is for you. We will detail the steps to establish an LLC from Peru.

First of all, What is an LLC and why should you consider it?

A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a business entity that combines the advantages of a corporation and a limited liability partnership. In other words, it combines the best of both types of companies. Additionally, it provides you with multiple benefits such as asset protection. That is, your personal assets are separated from those of the company, so if your company faces debts or lawsuits, your personal wealth is safe. On the other hand, LLCs can choose their tax structure, which in many cases simplifies taxation. Also, you can manage your LLC from anywhere in the world, which facilitates international expansion.

But now, the most important question, How to create an LLC from Peru?

  1. Choose a name and register a domain: Select a name for your LLC. Make sure it is not registered in the United States and check if the web domain is available. The domain you register must have a .pe or .com extension.

  2. Decide in which U.S. state you want to form the LLC: It is important that you know clearly in which state you want to open your LLC, as each of them has its own laws and regulations. Among the most popular are the following states:

    • Delaware: Offers greater legal protection and tax flexibility, with a 0% tax rate. The annual maintenance fee is $150.

    • Wyoming: Similar to Delaware, with 0% taxes and an annual maintenance fee of $50.

    • Nevada: Tax benefits, no taxes on individuals, companies, or franchises.

  3. Complete the legal procedures: Once you have chosen the state of your preference you must:

    • Register your LLC with the secretary of your state

    • Apply for the Employer Identification Number (EIN). This is a crucial requirement, as it will allow you to operate legally in the United States.

    • Make sure you comply with all state and federal regulations

  4. Create a bank account: You can open a bank account completely digitally. You will only need your valid passport. This will allow you to manage your business transactions and receive payments.

Advantages of creating an LLC in the United States from Peru

  1. Tax Minimization: Even if you sell in the United States, you only pay taxes in Peru. This can generate significant savings compared to other types of companies.

  2. Streamlined Procedures: Savings in monthly declarations and permits, as LLCs have fewer bureaucratic requirements than traditional businesses.

  3. Protection of Personal Liability: The LLC separates your personal assets from those of the company, which means you do not risk your personal possessions if the company faces financial or legal problems.

  4. Digital Operation: An LLC is a 100% digital company, which allows you to operate from anywhere in the world without the need for physical presence.

As you can see, opening an LLC from Peru is a relatively simple process and can offer significant advantages for your business.
