Hi, we have just set up a US company and a US bank account - do we need a US passport holder / anyone on the ground in the US for us to be able to legally trade and raise invoices?
Hello friend. My name is ***** ***** welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my reply.
What do you mean by trade? As in, trade stock? Or, to do business with other individuals/entities?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.

Hi Ely, thanks for responding - I mean to do business with other entities / other businesses. We have a Ltd company, incorporated in North Dakota.

I look forward to your response.



Thank you, Lee.
There is no requirement for an entity in USA to have a US Citizen or a lawfully permanent resident physically present in USA in order to do business with other entities.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Gentle Reminder: Use the reply button to keep chatting, or please rate and submit your rating when we are finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of the top three faces and then submit, as this is how I get credit for my time with you. Rating my answer the bottom two faces does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith.
