FAQs

1. What is an LLC and how does it work?

A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a type of business structure that combines features of both a corporation and a partnership (or sole proprietorship, in the case of a single-member LLC). Here's how an LLC works:

  1. Formation: To create an LLC, you typically need to file articles of organization with the appropriate state agency and pay the required fees. The articles of organization outline the basic details of the LLC, such as its name, address, management structure, and purpose.
  2. Ownership: An LLC can have one or more owners, who are referred to as "members." Members can be individuals, other businesses, or entities like trusts. In a single-member LLC, there is only one owner.
  3. Limited Liability: One of the key benefits of an LLC is that it offers limited liability protection to its members. This means that members are generally not personally responsible for the LLC's debts and liabilities. If the LLC incurs debts or is sued, the personal assets of the members are usually protected.
  4. Management: An LLC can be managed by its members (referred to as a member-managed LLC) or by appointed managers (referred to as a manager-managed LLC). The operating agreement, a document created by the members, outlines how the LLC will be managed and operated.
  5. Pass-Through Taxation: An important feature of LLCs is pass-through taxation. Profits and losses of the LLC "pass through" to the members' individual tax returns. This means that the LLC itself does not pay federal income taxes. Instead, members report their share of the LLC's income or losses on their personal tax returns.
  6. Flexibility: LLCs offer flexibility in terms of management and operation. There are fewer formalities and requirements compared to corporations. Operating agreements can be tailored to the specific needs and preferences of the members.
  7. Annual Requirements: While LLCs offer flexibility, they do have some ongoing obligations. Many states require LLCs to file annual reports and pay annual fees. Failure to meet these requirements can result in the LLC losing its good standing.
  8. Dissolution: An LLC can be dissolved voluntarily by its members or involuntarily through legal actions or bankruptcy. The process for dissolution is typically outlined in the operating agreement or state laws.
  9. Limited Life: In some states, an LLC may have a limited lifespan unless it is specifically stated otherwise in the articles of organization or operating agreement. If a member leaves or dies, the LLC may need to be dissolved or restructured.

It's important to note that while LLCs provide many benefits, the specific rules and regulations governing them can vary from state to state. Therefore, it's essential to understand your state's requirements and consult with legal and financial professionals when forming and operating an LLC to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

2. Do I need a foreign LLC for online business?

Whether you need a foreign LLC for your online business depends on several factors, including the nature of your business, where you live, and where your customers are located. Here are some considerations to help you determine if you need a foreign LLC for your online business:

  1. Your Location: If you operate your online business in the same state or country where you reside, you may not need a foreign LLC. In this case, you can typically form a domestic LLC in your home state or country.
  2. Business Activities: The need for a foreign LLC often arises when your online business conducts activities or has a significant presence in states or countries other than your home state or country. This presence can include having physical offices or employees, having customers or clients in other locations, or generating a substantial amount of revenue from outside your home jurisdiction.
  3. Legal Requirements: Different jurisdictions have varying rules and regulations regarding the formation of LLCs and foreign qualification. Research the laws in your jurisdiction to determine if your online business activities require foreign qualification.
  4. Taxation: Depending on where your customers are located and where your business generates income, you may have tax obligations in multiple jurisdictions. Consult with a tax professional to understand your tax obligations and whether a foreign LLC is necessary for tax compliance.
  5. Liability Protection: If you are primarily concerned with limited liability protection, forming a domestic LLC may be sufficient, as long as it offers the protection you need in your primary operating jurisdiction.
  6. Economic Nexus Laws: Some jurisdictions have implemented economic nexus laws that require businesses to collect and remit sales tax if they meet certain revenue thresholds in that jurisdiction. Your online business may trigger such requirements in states or countries other than your own, which could necessitate foreign qualification.
  7. Customer Expectations: Consider the expectations and preferences of your customers. Having a local presence, even through a foreign LLC, may instill greater trust and confidence in your business.
  8. Legal Advice: It's advisable to consult with legal and tax professionals who are familiar with the laws and regulations in your jurisdiction and the jurisdictions in which you do business. They can provide guidance tailored to your specific situation.
3. What does the S.A. stand for in a company?

Société anonyme (S.A.) is a French term that refers to a public limited company (PLC), and similar business structures exist worldwide. An S.A. is analogous to a corporation in the United States, a public limited company in the United Kingdom, or an Aktiengesellschaft (AG) in Germany.

Requirements for a Société Anonyme (S.A.)

An S.A. is subject to distinct tax regulations when compared to sole proprietorships or partnerships, and, in the case of a public S.A., it entails different accounting and auditing obligations. Furthermore, for an S.A. to be considered valid, it must fulfill specific criteria. While these criteria may vary depending on the country, most S.A.s are required to submit articles of incorporation, establish a board of directors, appoint either a managing director or a management board, institute a supervisory board, designate a statutory auditor and deputy, choose a unique name, and maintain a minimum capital amount. Typically, it is formed for a maximum duration of 99 years.

Understanding the Société Anonyme

The société anonyme is a widely adopted business structure with equivalents in various languages and countries. Regardless of the specific context, an entity designated as an S.A. provides protection for the personal assets of its owners against creditor claims, thereby incentivizing many individuals to embark on entrepreneurial ventures, as it mitigates their financial risk. Additionally, the S.A. framework facilitates meeting the capital requirements of a growing business, as it allows numerous investors to contribute varying amounts of capital as shareholders, particularly if the company opts for public ownership. Consequently, the S.A. plays a pivotal role in supporting a robust capitalist economy.

5. What is the difference between a holding company and an investment company?

Fresh entrepreneurs oftentimes cannot tell the difference between a holding company and an investment company. While they do have a lot of similarities, holding companies and investment companies each have their distinct purposes.

A holding company is a parent business entity that holds the controlling stock or membership interests in its subsidiary companies. The cost to set up a holding company varies depending on the legal entity it is registered with, usually a corporation or an LLC. Large businesses usually set up a holding company because of multiple benefits it brings, including: Protecting assets, reducing risk and tax, no day-to-day management, etc.

An investment company, on the other hand, does not own or directly control any subsidiary companies, but rather is engaged in the business of investing in securities. Setting up an investment company is different from setting up a holding company, as they can mostly be formed as a mutual fund, a closed-ended fund, or a unit investment trusts (UIT). Furthermore, each type of investment company has its own versions, such as stock funds, bond funds, money market funds, index funds, interval funds, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

6. What is a corporate service provider?

A corporate provider or company provider has skills and knowledge that are necessary for every business entity at some time throughout their operation. A corporate provider makes sure that a company complies with all applicable laws and norms set forth by the local government where the business is located.

All the legal compliance requirements could be difficult for new businesses. The cost of hiring a company provider may also be prohibitive for small businesses because of the temporary nature of the position.

Typically, a corporate service provider has a section for corporate secretarial services with a group of devoted corporate secretaries. In relation to incorporation-related issues, it can also provide legal and tax advising services.

Corporate providers’ range of duties includes:

  • Establishing a private limited company under the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA)
  • Offering a registered office and mailing address for notices and communications
  • Named Company Secretary provision
  • Upgrading of the Company's statutory records and registrations
  • Submission of any applications, notices, or returns to ACRA
  • Resolutions from Directors and Shareholders are written
  • Convocation and documentation preparation
  • Annual Return filing with ACRA
  • Sending reminders about the due dates for filing
  • Helping consumers open bank accounts and setting up a meeting with a bank officer
7. What are the 4 key steps in developing a business plan?

1. Executive summary

Even though it is one of the shorter parts of a business plan, you should devote the most effort to it.

No matter how many pages your business plan is, whether it is five or thirty, the executive summary section must summarize everything in the plan in only two pages. This section draws a lot of attention because the reader may simply glance at it before deciding whether to continue or stop reading.

2. Marketing plan

Competitive analysis section

Reading the competitive analysis section helps comprehend enterprises’ competition.

About five competitors should be listed here, along with their advantages and disadvantages. When examining your competition, some points to consider include:

  • Operating time
  • Accessibility
  • Pricing
  • Return policy
  • Budget for marketing (or a rough estimate)
  • Reputation of a brand
  • Policy for product delivery (is it provided free, at cost, or not at all?)
  • Additional goods and services
  • Purchasing number (which may equate to lower or higher costs).

Specific marketing actions

Your marketing action plan, which is utilized to put your business idea into practice, develops the precise marketing actions.

 Make a note of the implementation costs for each of the five marketing phases (the sum of which will be your marketing budget), if enterprises can accomplish each step on their own or if they require help, and the projected sales (which when added together, become the sales forecast).

3. Key management bios

Include a one-page biography for each of the important figures in your company.

These biographies should be written in a way that shows you've "been there, done that," and you know how to do it again. You want to show that you possess both the technical know-how and the leadership abilities required for the job. Mention your plans for bringing on more team members to fill any potential experience or skill shortages.

4. Financial plan

The financial statements are one of the last components in your business plan. The business plan is demonstrated to be practical in the parts of products and services, marketing, operations, and personnel, but it is proven to be profitable in the financial area.

8. Why do you need to hire a corporate service provider for your business?

Corporate businesses offer accounting and tax services in addition to assisting new business owners in setting up their operations legally. You can save time and money by working with an expert corporate service provider. Here are 2 main reasons why you need to hire a corporate service provider for your business:

Time-saving:

Incorporating a business can be time-consuming. It is a protracted process that needs both time and knowledge. Furthermore, if you complete everything by hand, you risk skipping a step in the registration process. It is generally advisable to contract out this responsibility to a corporate service provider in order to produce the papers flawlessly. A corporate service provider has the knowledge and experience required to register your corporation under legislation.

Understanding of current tax laws

The governments always work to improve their laws and regulations to keep up with the evolving economy. Even if a business owner can always handle the necessary documentation, it can be challenging to keep up with the constantly evolving regulatory requirements. The professionals in a corporate service keep track of all such changes through the press or courts. A business owner only needs to select a suitable company that offers the needed corporate service providers.
