In general:

Over 50% of all companies on the NY Stock Exchange are Delaware
corporations. Delaware has a long heritage as a business-friendly state and
may be a good choice if you intend to take your company public and offer
publicly traded stock. Delaware has many other advantages, including low
incorporation fees, low annual franchise taxes, and no state corporate
income tax for corporations that operate outside of Delaware Furthermore,
Delaware maintains a separate court system for business, called the "Court
of Chancery." This Court is known for its well-established record of
decisions and speed at which it handles disputes.

Limited Liability:

Similar to a corporation, all of the members (owners of an LLC are called
members) of an LLC enjoy limited personal liability. Generally owners are
not exposed to legal liability for the debts of the business, you only risk
your share of the investment in the business.

Tax Flexibility:

An LLC with two or more members can choose how it wishes to be taxed. It can
have the pass-through taxation of partnership or elect to be taxed as a
corporation. Most LLC's will choose to have pass-through taxation in order
to have the profit or losses of the business pass-through to the to the tax
returns of it's individual members. Electing pass-through taxation avoids
the possibility of the double taxation associated with traditional
corporations.

For LLC's with only one member you can elect to be taxed as a sole
proprietorship or a corporation. Most single member LLC's will elect to be
taxed as a sole proprietorship to avoid double taxation. Profits and losses
from the LLC will be reported on your individual tax return.

Time required:

It'll be within 3 business days for incorporation of the company depending
on the Secretary of State's constraints really.

Share capital required:

There is no minimum share capital for DW. When we incorporate, it will be
zero share capital as no shares are issued.

Note for LLC, it's called membership. There will be membership certs
(similar to share certs).

Note: Corporations have less favourable tax rules (like double taxation) and
tedious record keeping. That's why LLC are so popular.

US$20 if less than US$5,000 Average Daily.

statements and move funds between intrabank account and do TT transactions.

Yearly maintenance and penalty:

The yearly maintenance for DW LLC is US$195 (commissionable at 15%) + state
fees US$85. Note there is a penalty for late filing which is US$50 charged
by the state. Please bear in mind that standard filing means it'll take
about 40days by the Secretary of State. So for renewal, client has to do at
least 2 months in advance or pay for expedite fees varies from $50 to $500

Registered address:

The DW registered address is used strictly for government notices &
correspondences. If client needs it as a mail drop for others, we'll have to
make arrangement and there is a fee involved. So if client wishes to use
registered office address for invoicing, arrangements will have to be made.

Invoice issuance:

Any invoices issued using a US address is taxable when there is a profit and
it's going to be difficult to avoid tax as there is a paper trial. If it is
a U.S. company then it is subject to U.S. taxation on its world-wide profits
(not DW state but US Federal tax). However meticulous records will have to
be maintained for the Internal Revenue Service.
