How to Set Up an Offshore Company in Wyoming USA
As we have already established in our previous posts, forming an offshore company can create many advantages for your business. But the truth is some jurisdictions are better than others in general and also, specifically in your unique situation. What does that mean? While it is best for a company that trades in the EU to be formed in Bulgaria or Cyprus, a non-U.S. citizen will benefit the most if the set up an offshore company in Wyoming, USA. This article will explain in detail why.
Why USA in General
First of all, let’s look at the USA in general. It is one of the largest economies in the world, it finds itself in a stable political status and does not comply with the AEoL agreement, which means it guarantees privacy to foreign account holders. And now, more about Wyoming in particular.
Wyoming is Great for an eCommerce Offshore Company
The absolute best choice for an eCommerce startup would be to form an offshore company in Wyoming. The main reasons are these:

You Can Keep Your Assets Private
In an article we published last month we explained how the U.S. became the new tax haven. It was mainly due to the issue of the FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act), which was accepted by the vast majority of the countries in the world. However, the U.S. still does not reciprocate the efforts other countries make in sharing financial data with the relevant tax authorities. This very fact guarantees the full privacy of any non-U.S. citizen who decides to set up an offshore company in Wyoming, USA. Also, as mentioned here, the States do not require any information about the directors or shareholders of a company to be publically available.
The Tax Rate in Wyoming is Sweet
In fact, the tax rate in Wyoming is zero. That alone is a good enough reason to set up your offshore company here and nowhere else. When we add the benefit of the U.S. strong economy and political climate, you wouldn’t even be thinking of forming your business structure in any of the ever so popular Caribbean tax havens.
