New York - A vibrant business community

There are more than 2 million SMEs in the state of New York. Finance, high technology, real estate, insurance, and healthcare are major sectors of New York City's economy.

In 2020, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of New York was about 1.7 trillion U.S. dollars, which ranks 3rd in the USA. For taxable years in 2021-2023, the New York State corporate income tax rate increases from 6.5% to 7.25%. However, small businesses, qualified NY manufacturers, and emerging technology companies can maintain their current respective preferential tax rates.

New York City and its surrounding metropolitan area make up the majority in the state's economy. Among them, Manhattan is widely known as the leading center of banking, finance and media in the USA, also, it is home base for the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on Wall Street and Times Square.

The economic landscape for doing business in New York offers many opportunities, as well as challenges for entrepreneurs who first get a foot in the door.

Large professional talent pool

New York is a populous state on the East Coast, famous for its metropolitan area and economic activities. The competitive atmosphere makes businesses crave for talented employees. To meet this challenge, many companies are developing more attractive compensation packages and other benefits for employees to better attract, recruit and retain top talent.

Luckily, the state has a large professional talent pool. New York is home to many top universities and a diverse population of skilled workers. This means that even though skilled labor is in high demand, companies can still recruit potential employees from that large talent pool. For example, a foreign LLC doing business in New York will likely hire local professionals, as it is much easier than hiring people from elsewhere.

Aside from students, there are a ton of individuals, who are very talented, migrating from other countries to New York. “Research shows that over 20% of New York residents are immigrants, while one-third of adult immigrants had a college degree or even more education. Offshore companies won’t have an issue with finding talent while running business here in New York”, said Mr. Tyler Wong - Operations Director of One IBC Group.
