Delaware is the leading US state for international business, over 60% of the companies listed in the New York and American Stock exchanges and Fortune 500 companies are incorporated in the Delaware LLC Jurisdiction. The attraction of the Jurisdiction is multifaceted; corporations/LLC’s not having any business in Delaware pay no Delaware Corporate income tax. Franchise tax compares favourably with other states and is payable on the authorised share capital of a company at a rate of 1%.
Delaware company law is considered throughout the US as the most favourable with its dedicated Chancery Court establishing pro-businesses precedents. It is a highly respected and prestigious Jurisdiction, with excellent confidentiality. An LLC can be operated anonymously without the state being aware of the identity of its owners.
A limited liability company can be registered within 2 working days with an additional week to receive the documentation.

Offshore Company Formation Formalities
The non resident limited liability company (LLC) is the usual form taken by the offshore business. The LLC is a separate entity from its owners who are classified as ‘members’ and the liability of the individual member is limited to their investment.

The Delaware company formation requirements for a LLC are very flexible.

  • The minimum number of members and managers each is one.
  • One individual can hold all the corporate offices of President, Treasurer and Secretary.
  • There no are minimum capital requirements.
  • Bearer shares are not permitted.
  • A registered office and agent in Delaware must be maintained.
  • There is no requirement to file financial statements unless the LLC owns assets in Delaware or has conducted business with local residents.
  • There is no requirement to disclose beneficial ownership.
The Delaware business Trust is an unincorporated association that must be evidenced in writing. It is a tax efficient vehicle. The Trust is managed by one or more named Trustees who are not personally liable for any obligations of the business Trust. At least one Trustee must be either a Delaware resident or have a principal place of business in Delaware. The beneficial owners are protected from liability and have an undivided beneficial interest in the business Trust's property, and have no interest in specific business Trust property.


US State income tax is levied in addition to federal income tax. In the state of Delaware corporate tax is levied on the income of all domestic businesses. All non-resident limited liability companies, corporations and limited Partnerships that do not conduct business in Delaware and do not receive income from a Delaware source, are exempted from corporate taxes, sales taxes and property taxes. The only tax paid to the state of Delaware is an annual franchise tax.

There is also exemption from inheritance tax on stocks or shares held by non residents.
