Why Choose a US LLC for Brazilian Entrepreneurs?

For Brazilian entrepreneurs aiming to globalize their operations, a US LLC offers unparalleled advantages. It enhances credibility, provides access to a vast market, and offers legal protections that separate personal assets from business liabilities. With BusinessRocket, Brazilians can leverage these benefits, ensuring their venture is recognized on an international scale and protected under US law.

Choosing the Right State for Your LLC

BusinessRocket acts as a strategic partner in selecting the most beneficial state for your LLC. Whether you’re drawn to Delaware’s business-centric laws or Wyoming’s tax-friendly environment, our guidance is tailored to align with your business objectives and financial considerations, ensuring your venture thrives in an optimal jurisdiction.

EIN Application Process for Brazilian Residents

For Brazilian entrepreneurs launching US LLCs, securing an Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a crucial step. BusinessRocket eliminates the hassle of the SSN requirement, ensuring a smooth EIN application process.

Traditionally, non-residents face a slow and paper-based EIN application via fax to the IRS. This method can drag on for weeks, with an initial processing time of 7-10 business days followed by a potential IRS review that could take an additional month. BusinessRocket expedites this process by proactively contacting the IRS three times a week to follow up on your application status.

At BusinessRocket, we understand the unique challenges Brazilian founders face when navigating US business regulations. We provide alternative solutions tailored to your situation. This may include facilitating the application through a pre-authorized US representative or utilizing an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) if, from our analysis of the nature of your business, you require one.
