Why Choose a US LLC for Argentine Entrepreneurs?

For Argentine entrepreneurs aiming to expand on a global scale, establishing a US LLC offers a pathway to growth, credibility, and access to the international market. A US-based entity enhances trust among customers, suppliers, and potential partners, which can be critical for securing business deals and expanding operations. 

  • Global Market Access: By incorporating in the US, Argentine businesses aren’t limited to their domestic market; they can tap into the expansive and diverse US market, potentially leading to increased sales, partnerships, and enhanced brand recognition.
  • Increased Credibility and International Exposure: A US LLC indicates a serious commitment to adhering to international business norms, significantly enhancing a company’s stability and potential for success in the eyes of global stakeholders.
  • Legal Protection and Organizational Flexibility: The LLC structure offers personal asset protection against business liabilities and allows for customizable management and ownership arrangements, catering to the specific needs of the business.

Choosing the Right State for Your LLC

Each US state, with its own unique laws, offers distinct benefits for LLCs. BusinessRocket acts as your guide, helping you navigate through the complexities of state-specific regulations to identify the most beneficial location for your LLC, based on your specific business objectives and financial considerations.

  • State-Specific Advantages: BusinessRocket guides entrepreneurs in choosing the best state for their US LLC, while considering their unique goals. Popular choices include Wyoming for tax efficiency, Delaware for business-friendly laws, Nevada for waiver of income/franchise taxes, robust privacy features, and options for business growth, and New Mexico for affordability and privacy protections.
  • Tailored State Selection Assistance: BusinessRocket evaluates your business model, financial goals, and specific needs to recommend the most suitable state for your LLC, ensuring that you are always ahead when it comes to compliance.

EIN Application Process for Argentine Residents

Obtaining an Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a vital step in establishing your US LLC for non-residents. BusinessRocket simplifies this process for Argentine entrepreneurs, facilitating the acquisition of an EIN without requiring a Social Security Number (SSN).

  • EIN Without SSN: Argentine entrepreneurs can apply for an EIN using their international passport, with BusinessRocket managing the application process and corresponding with the IRS on their behalf.
  • Streamlined EIN Application Service: We demystify the application process, ensuring your business details are in order and your EIN application is sealed and submitted directly, accurately and efficiently to your email.

Traditionally, non-residents face a slow, paper-based EIN application by fax. It takes weeks, with a 7-10 business day initial wait and a potential month-long IRS review. BusinessRocket speeds things up by actively following up with the IRS three times a week on your behalf.

Understanding US Tax Obligations for Argentine LLC Owners

While forming a US LLC can be an exciting opportunity for Argentinian entrepreneurs, it’s vital to consider the tax implications, particularly the concept of the Effectively Connected Income (ECI) for non-resident owners from Argentina. Unlike traditional corporations, US LLCs are pass-through entities. This means the LLC itself doesn’t pay taxes on profits, and those profits (or losses) “pass through” to the owners and are reported on their personal tax returns.

However, as a non-resident Argentinian owner, your US tax filing obligations depend on whether your LLC’s income is considered “effectively connected” to a US trade or business. This concept, known as ETBUS, can be intricate and hinge on factors like the location of your business activities and management, as well as the nature of your business. This is where we come in – to help you fully understand and manage these tax responsibilities.

Opening a US Bank Account from Argentina

With your EIN, BusinessRocket assists in setting up a US bank account, a critical step for legitimizing your business and simplifying financial operations. A US bank account facilitates business transactions and bolsters the financial and international structure of your business. BusinessRocket guides you through the banking requirements and documentation, overcoming common challenges faced by foreign entrepreneurs. For your US LLC you’ll need:

  • A copy of the photo page of your International Passport copy;
  • An Argentine bank statement;
  • A utility bill displaying your name;
  • US address for your LLC (we can help with this through iPostal1.com).

Maintaining Your US LLC from Argentina

Even after launching your US LLC from Argentina, maintaining good standing with the state is crucial. This involves annual reports, tax filings, and state-specific regulations – challenges when managing from afar.
