Step 1: Select a state:

When you are selecting a state for LLC generation from outside the USA, the best option is to go for the states that are offering minimal or zero taxes. Nevada, Delaware (link to Iqra’s article), and Wyoming are notoriously inexpensive in this regard.

Step 2: Name your LLC:

Naming your LLC is very important for getting an EIN and opening a US bank account for your business. There are some guidelines to following when you are about to name your company:

  • The company name must include the phrase limited liability company or abbreviations LLC/L.L.C.
  • Certain terminologies such as the FBI, State Department, etc. can confuse your LLC with the government agency. The use of such terms is prohibited.
  • The use of restricted words such as University, Attorney, and Banks requires additional paperwork and a licensed individual. If your company is referring to such fields and including such terms is obligatory then Ejad labs plus is here for you in providing licensed individuals and doing the paperwork.
  • Buy your business URL even if you don’t plan to make a website to prevent others from acquiring it.

  • Your company’s agent’s address
  • Name and legal address of the incorporator
  • Value of authorized shares

Step 5: Creating an LLC Operating Agreement:

Step 6: Get an Employer Identification Number (EIN):
