great infoYou can apply for an EIN yourself without a registered agent. The process is free and you can do it through an online US fax number.
There is a REALLY awesome guide here which I followed: How to Apply for EIN (for your LLC) without an SSN or ITIN | LLC University®
and it worked perfect. Takes a few days but IRS will fax it to your online fax number and you get an email straight away. Very easy. Don't pay a registered agent to get an EIN for you - you can do it free with a little bit of work.
What does Anderson charge for accounting and taxes ?I have some full service solution for WY.
Asset Protection and Tax Advisors - Anderson Business Advisors will do accounting and tax filing too and serve as your registered agent and nominee. They can do other states too.
Wyoming Trust & LLC Attorney - Asset Protection is Our Only Focus will do the virtual office and LLC paperwork, but will not do taxes.
that's interesting, did they travel to the US and visited the bank or did they already live there? I believe it is not possible to open a US bank account remote unless you know someone.I personally know several people who opened up us bank accounts (BofA, Wells Fargo) for their non resident llc.
in your opinion, Wyoming is still the better solution if privacy matters?
You can get a bank account from Mercury, which is good enough for until you find time to visit USA in person.
I used North West. They can help you with a whole process, but IMO applying for EIN and then for account in Mercury is manageable by anybody who's smart enough to run business.
I was quite pleased with L4SB (Law 4 Small Business). Law firm that does registered agent too. Can't remember a time they didn't pick up the phone when I called.
I agree, a few hundred dollars should not stop you if you plan long term!such a smalltime thing that a few hundred dollars a year are a matter of life and death (or almost)?
do the offer registered office too? accounting? tax filing?I was quite pleased with L4SB (Law 4 Small Business). Law firm that does registered agent too. Can't remember a time they didn't pick up the phone when I called.
Yes, registered agent with their office, they get your mail and all that. And they are mostly lawyers and paralegals. Can't remember about accounting and tax filing because that venture of mine kinda aborted. But at the most they will have a few selected CPAs available. Really good people.I agree, a few hundred dollars should not stop you if you plan long term!

What bank account do you have for these entities?For privacy they are the same in my opinion. And I would chose NM for the cheaper price and no yearly renewal fee. I have myself a few NM LLCs that have no assets, or are owned by a WY holding LLC to get the WY charging order.
For asset protection, WY is way ahead. So if you need privacy and asset protection, choose WY.
Haven't reached 6 digits yet, so no troubles. But tbh Mercury has some award scheme for accounts with more than 250k USD deposit. Actually you'll receive a tea. But the point is they not so afraid of 6-7 figures
