Overview

Delaware State (USA) is one of the 50 states of the USA and known by its advanced company registration facilities for non us residents (offshore LLC). It is located on the East Coast of the United States between New York City and Washington D.C.. The geographical position represents a real advantage in terms of export markets due to its close location to the sea and main highways.

Delaware's fastest growth sector in recent years has been in the financial sector and in particular incorporation and formation of international companies as a Delaware LLC or Delaware Corporation.

Many American & International Companies as wells as banks, financial institutions and world-wide corporation have made Delaware their registered jurisdiction. The enactment of the law to establish a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in October of 1992, which combines the best aspects of the Corporation and the Limited Partnership, has made Delaware even more attractive in its quest to expand its economy.

The companies incorporated in Delaware are known as LLCs, which offer the advantages of a combination between a corporation limited by shares and a Limited Partnership, thus is a good way to protect the personal liability and assets of the owners. At the same time, it allows the owner to enjoy the benefits of a tax-free jurisdiction on all business transactions and profits generated outside the United States without having to go through the restrictions of a US Corporation.

It offers the possibility to have a US company with the similar advantages of an International Business Company (traditionally called “offshore company”). Business registration in the state of Delaware can be processed in 48 hours.

A Delaware LLC allows a customized management structure, which dictates the economic relationship among owners. While Delaware law permits a Delaware LLC to be managed by its members, it does not require members to be managers. The Delaware LLC statute allows parties to define their business relationship in the written agreement however they wish. This is called Freedom of Contract. Delaware Law provides rules only for those matters on which the parties have failed to agree. The contractual flexibility offered by the Delaware Act is unmatched by any other LLC statute. For example, unlike a corporation, an LLC can distribute profits in any manner described in the LLC agreement, regardless of ownership share. The structure of the LLC does not provide for a Board of Directors.
