  • What is Single Member LLC?
    A Single Member LLC (SMLLC) is a Limited Liability Company (LLC) created by state statute with only one member. This means that 100% of the LLC is owned by one owner. If there are more than one owners, meaning two or more, the LLC is a Multi Member LLC.
  • What is Foreign owned Single Member LLC?
    When the Single Member LLC (SMLLC) is owned by a Non-U.S.-Resident, it is defined as Foreign owned Single Member LLC and special tax treatment and tax filing requirements apply.

    In most cases, Foreign Owned Single Member LLC (SMLLC) does not pay U.S. income tax if: 1. All of the owners are non U.S. citizens / residents 2. The LLC does not have U.S. employees or freelancers 3. There is no physical office, warehouse, shipping facility or other type of physical presence in the U.S. If the LLC has U.S. residents / Citizen owners, or it has U.S. employees / freelancers, or it has a physical presence in the U.S., the LLC's income is considered: Effectively Connected Income (ECI). Generally, when a foreign person engages in a trade or business in the United States, all income from sources within the United States connected with the conduct of that trade or business is considered to be Effectively Connected Income (ECI). This applies whether or not there is any connection between the income, and the trade or business being carried on in the United States, during the tax year. Generally, you must be engaged in a trade or business during the tax year to be able to treat income received in that year as ECI. You usually are considered to be engaged in a U.S. trade or business when you perform personal services in the United States.
