I paid 44 pounds and cant ring you??

An LLC is a pass-through tax entity. What this means is that the LLC is not taxed directly. Instead the profits and losses of the business pass through to its owners, who report them on their personal tax returns.

as a foreigner, you must have no US presence. You are only subject to US tax if you are “engaged in a trade or business in the United States”, which only applies if two things are true:

(1) you have at least one “dependent agent” in the US, which are employees or companies that work for you almost exclusively, and

(2) this dependent agent does something substantial to further your business in the US, as opposed to something purely administrative.

I physically cannot speak on phone

What is the difference between llc and sole propreitor and which is better for me?

For tax none

Unlike a sole proprietorship, an LLC is a hybrid of the partnership and corporate forms that allows the liability protection of a corporation with the tax advantages of a partnership. An LLC is a separate business entity that is owned by investors known as members.
