I run a non-profit startup ministry. We have no hopes of establishing a physical office in the USA. In fact we have no physical office in our home country in Accra. We are online based and we produce software for Christians as a non-profit. Majority of our users are in USA. Are there any downright benefits for incorporating in the USA as compared to our home country? Which state is the best?
Little costs, huge market, positive innovation climate, partnerships opportunities, capital
Hi I'm Ryan, Originally from Canada but living in Kenya.
Kenyan firms often set up holding companies in the State of Delaware, if they are looking to source funding from US investors. Delaware is known for strong business law and a favourable legal system. The other markets are often offshore places like Mauritius.
The main areas to explore are tax implications and are you looking to source investment from the US. As you are a non-profit this would only apply for grants, setting up a US Charitable arm can open up funding options.
