+ What does tax free LLC mean?
It means that LLC with non-US members & no US operation will not pay US taxes if the following conditions are met:
Taxable income generated by LLC that elects to be treated as disregarded entity for tax purposes, may be considered ‘not effectively connected with US trade or business’ and as such are not subject to US taxation, if all LLC members are non-US residents and living outside of the US and the LLC has no US presence or operation.

Who qualifies for a tax-exempt US LLC?
Interest bearing accounts
+ US Bank Account opening services
If your Delaware Company has all prerequisites (company in good standing, US tax number (EIN), US business address) we can assist to open a corporate bank account in Delaware or in NY.
Your corporate bank account will be open with one of the largest banks in the United States. Online banking, check book and VISA card is included. Only you or your named signatories will have access to the bank account – we won’t provide “nominee banking” as other providers might do.
To open an account for your Delaware Company we require certified copies of the company documents and 2 pieces of ID for all bank account signatories. A copy of your passport and Driver’s License is usually enough. We do not need certified company documents if you formed your Delaware Company through us.
+ Additional prerequisites to open US Bank Account
A US tax number for the company is required if none of the company directors (Corporation) or members (LLC) are US citizens or resident in the United States.
Either the applicant shows up in person at the bank (trip to the United States required) or a representative/company officer based in Delaware opens the bank account on behalf of the company.
Last not least, a business address in the United States for receiving statements, cards and online banking codes is required.
Why open a Bank Account in the US
A Delaware registered company is not obliged to maintain its bank accounts in the State of Delaware or the USA. In fact, the company can open bank accounts anywhere worldwide. However, international clients who form a Delaware company with the intention to do business in the United States will at some stage require a local company bank account in the United States.
A US corporate bank account simplifies payments for US and Canadian customers. Usually US-based clients prefer to pay to a local bank account rather than by international wire transfer. If your company needs to compete in very competitive markets favorable payments terms often make the difference between a client placing an order or going somewhere else.
The US company bank account is essential if you regularly receive checks from US clients (e.g. Webmaster business). Cashing US checks via American banks cost almost nothing and it takes only days while international banks charge high processing fees and take 1-4 weeks to clear these checks.
Another important reason to open the company bank account in the United States could be access to US card processing facilities, which are not available to international clients.
The general procedure to open a corporate bank account in the United States remained unchanged since the 60’s: US banks ask for proof confirming that the company exists and that it is in good standing.
These are our services before you deal directly with the bank by yourself:
Provision of properly legalized corporate documentation where applicable.
Our bank account introduction is a professional service provided by Atrium to European or Offshore company owners as an approved bank intermediary.
While we cannot guarantee the bank will open an account for every client, by using our professional expertise, we can significantly increase the success rate for account opening. We also can reduce potential application hold ups with incorrect or missing documents that the client may not have been aware of.
Factors we consider when recommending banks for account opening:
- Client’s citizenship and country of residence
- Types of transactions involved (trading / manufacturing / real estate / investment)
- Volume of payment transfers
- Investment requirements
- Soft currency requirements
- Language issues when communicating with the bank

FAQs | Frequently Asked Questions
- Do I have to visit the US to open a bank account?
- What is the process?
- Why do you need to represent me in a bank?
- Payment methods
- Is bank account opening guaranteed?
- How is it guaranteed?
No, you do not. Everything can be done remotely.
1. Gathering and submitting required documentation for review by bank.
2. Bank account opening, setting up online banking. Account is operational.
3. Business debit card is issued, activated and forwarded to client.
Can’t you just open bank account in my name remotely?
Unfortunately, at the moment we can’t; recent changes in bank account opening process, and in this specific case, JPMorgan Chase has made it almost impossible for NRA (non-resident aliens) to remotely open personal or business bank account as a sole owner. That is why we have to be company’s Manager (even though with 0% ownership) – someone must be present in a bank at the moment of opening.
We accept PayPal, credit card and wire transfer.
Yes. But if you had any problems with US banks in the past this may take some time for us to figure out the proper solution.
