We Care About You and Your Business
Every investment opportunity contains risk. At the same time, the foreign national is attempting to relocate him or herself, their family, and their business. Therefore, the decisions and strategies to allocate the capital and manage the risks involved in these cases are separate but co-dependent. On one hand, the interests of the business entities (both domestic and foreign) must be protected. On the other hand, businesses and individuals must comply with the intricacies of U.S. Immigration Law. As business immigration lawyers, we have the experience and knowledge to help you navigate through the process and advise on measures so that both, personal and commercial risks are properly considered.
Business Immigration F.A.q.s
To begin a business, choose the right company structure. Each type of business has its own advantages and disadvantages. To do this, you’ll need to decide which type of business structure is right for you and your business. The most common business structures to pick from are sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, and corporations.
Once you’ve registered your business, you need an individual taxpayer identification number. This nine-digit number is given to people who don’t have a Social Security Number but need to file taxes. This number is utilized to identify your business and is required for tax purposes.
If you’re starting a business as an immigrant with employees, another nine-digit number you will need to obtain is an Employer Identification Number or EIN. This number from the IRS is used to identify your business for tax purposes. To apply for an EIN as an immigrant, fill out an application for it on the IRS website.
It would be wise for aspiring immigrants to consult with an attorney. An attorney can help you choose the right business structure and ensure that you’re in compliance with all state and federal regulations. Depending on your preferred business structure, you may need to file additional paperwork with your state or local government.
