What do the best-informed international business owners know? Delaware is better than off-shore!
For several years, foreign fiduciaries and attorneys have turned to Harvard Business Services, Inc. to form Delaware business entities. And they've done so for sound business and strategic reasons.
To our many international customers, confidentiality is important. Many of our customers select single-member Delaware LLCs as one component of their asset protection strategy. The Delaware LLC provides this confidentiality that most international jurisdictions do not offer. As a Delaware registered agent, Harvard Business Services, Inc. is not required to keep any information on the beneficial owner, and the state of Delaware does not require that the beneficial owner's identity be disclosed.
Benefits of Incorporating in Delaware
Real Estate Ownership
Owners of real estate in international locations have a range of options to shelter their ownership including holding the title/deed in the name of a Delaware LLC. The structure has the flexibility to account for estate planning issues as well as asset protection.
Strategies for Specific Purposes
Some of our international customers have used single-member Delaware LLCs to maintain confidentiality in a way that's entirely acceptable and legal. If a customer owns a corporation in their own country, they form a Delaware LLC as the operating company of this foreign corporation by transferring all its shares into that Delaware LLC. The Delaware LLC provides confidentiality because by Delaware state law the identities of members or managers are not made public. All the details and arrangements of the LLC are handled by a private operating agreement that affords the owners tremendous contractual flexibility.
As a part of Harvard Business Services, Inc.'s international package, we will prepare and file your Delaware LLC Certificate of Formation and ship your certified copy of the Certificate of Formation-with the Apostille de la Hague-via DHL or Federal Express to you on the next business day following the filing by the state of Delaware.Protect Your Assets.
