Foreign Owned U.S. Entities

The constantly changing landscape of global businesses attracts many investors to the American market, commonly known as Foreign Direct Investment. These entrepreneurs are either branching their existing operations by accessing U.S. customers, or are simply seeking the prestige of an American company with a stable U.S. currency. Investors can choose entity structures that can offer favorable tax treatments, protection from personal liability, and/or ease of capital formation. While the benefits can be compelling, foreign companies should be aware of the various federal, state, and possibly local filing and compliance requirements they will need to follow.
