Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
My immediate reaction is why the USA? Would it not be better to set up in a tax haven like the Channel Islands, Gibraltar or the Turks and Caios Islands? However, if you do set one up in the States the only problem you might face is the US Withholding Tax, currently 30%, but under the Double Taxation Treaty between the UK and the USA, for the UK, 20%. This may be applied to any withdrawals. US Corporate tax rates vary, Federal between 15% and 35% and then there will be State Taxes to apply on top of that. The UK has Double taxation Treaties with several individual States within the Union in addition to the USA itself.
I must say your proposal seems a trifle complex. Why not just set up an UK company for this trading venture?
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
Generally the same as operating with an US company, but probably less regulatory hassle.
Please be so kind as to rate me before you leave the Just Answer site.
