You had to travel to the USA to get that Citibank account ?

I just randomly bumped into the article online, which states that by being a single-member LLC you simply transfer the funds from the company to your personal account and do not need to pay any taxes. Is this true? Probably applicable to US only

True with some conditions. For example you can’t be a US resident or hire people in the US who work exclusively for you to further your business.

You or your LLC might still be liable to pay taxes in your home country, or in the US if you don’t meet all conditions.

hmmm, I thought otherwise because the post seems to be clearly for the US citizens and residents. (it is quite basic, I was googling for the basic stuff)


and you tell here completely different thing. So I am EU citizen and can have an LLC in the USA and freely transfer the profit from the company to my personal account? Aspect with hiring seems logical but not with being non-US citizen

This might be useful if you are reading about the basics: Flow-Through Entities: What You Need to Know

US residents pay taxes as individuals for the income they receive from their LLCs, since you aren't a US resident you won't be liable for paying taxes in the US but you still need to pay taxes for the income in your home country.

You will not pay any US corporate (LLC are not axed as entities) nor income tax(if you are not a US citizen or resident you are not subject to income tax)
You MAY be liable for sales tax ONLY IF you have nexus in a state, and if so, only to sales made to residents in that state.
No employees/warehouses etc innthe US then you won’t pay any taxes.
You will have to pay the yearly state fee for the LLC (it’s small) and file a report but that’a nothing.

As far as taxes for your home country? Yes you’re liable, or you’re not, that’s up to you and your dealings and country.

You probably will not be able to get merchant processing through citibank, as all us processing requires a US resident in the account.
Taxes shouldn't change, however they would send a 1099-K to irs so you'd be on their radar.

Yes, you have to pay taxes if the income is US source. You will need a ITIN number or SSN if you want to open a merchant account.

What taxes? Hes not a resident so not subject to income tax.
LLC is not taxed so no corporate tax.
I think hed only be on the hook for sales tax if he meets certain state thresholds. 200k sales in one state, then hed be liable for sales tax in only sales made to that state. Each state has different limits/thresholds if they have them at all though. Even then its kinda new not sure how much its enforced.

Well Wyoming can keep you name off of public registers IIRC. Delaware and Wyoming also have zero sales tax. It used to be you didnt pay sales tax on online sales if you didnt have nexus in the state ie no employees, warehouses, etc.
Now they have economic nexus in some states meaning if you have certain threshold of sales you have nexus in that state and pay sales tax. I think that some people confuse Wyoming with anonymous in that no one can find out who you are, when reality is youre never anonymous to the government of course. You can of course be anonymous but whoever is listed as owner of the LLC can be found if they want. Which again doesnt mean they find you.

for sure US citizens only. It won't apply if you live in EU at least so much I know.

It requires some real good tax planning to avoid personal taxes, which is almost impossible.

Its true in that you transfer the funds to your personal account and dont pay any cooperate taxes as US LLC are not taxed. Its "pass through entity" and you pay taxes on the income you make from it ie yes you transfer funds to your personal account and then pay personal income tax on that. If residing in the USA thats US income tax
Outside the USA you do the same with your US LLC, you transfer your earnings to your home bank, now you wont pay income tax to the USA as you are not a resident, you will of course be declaring that as personal income to your home country.
The sales tax/economic nexus was already covered and you are supposed to pay that as well if you qualify for it.
Im sure people have set ups to be able to spend that money, buy assets, withdraw cash in order to avoid needing to transfer the entire amount to their personal bank and declare personal income.

Remember, if the income is US source, it is taxable even though the SMLLC owner is foreign citizen. The party paying to the SMLLC will file a form with the IRS for the amount paid.

Not necessarily, only if you have etbus.
Also, the definition of US source might not be what you expect. For example if you make your own products it's where they are produced (not where the customers are).
