Procedure of Company Registration
Delaware is an easy and reliable state in the USA in which to incorporate or form a number of different legal entities, including Corporation-C/ Corporation-S) however setting up a Limited Liability Company (LLC) is the most popular option. An LLC is an entity that is owned by members, operated by managers and run by an operating agreement.
An LLC offers the benefits and flexibility of ownership as a partnership, while at the same time offering the limited liability and asset protection of a corporation. In addition to this limited liability protection, there are also substantial tax benefits to be garnered from the formation of an LLC.
The profits or losses of the business organisation pass directly through to the Member's personal income tax return “pass through taxation”, with no taxation at the LLC level. The net profit of the LLC is not considered to be income earned by the Members and therefore is not subject to self-employment tax.

Can you help me open a bank account to form an LLC?
Eltoma offers incorporation and formation filing services, registered agent services, qualification services, and many others. However, we do not physically assist with the opening of bank accounts for customers.
If you locate a bank, we can work with you to help you obtain any additional documents required. If you need a referral for a specific bank in Delaware, we can also provide referrals, but you will need to complete the application process. We will not act as an intermediary because of federal “know your customer” banking laws.
Are Delaware LLCs able to do business in other states?
Yes. You are allowed to operate a Delaware LLC for any legal business in every state in the USA. Under the US Constitution, your Delaware LLC is viewed as a “person” and other states cannot discriminate against this person based on where he/she/it was born or incorporated. This is protected under the full faith and credit clauses, equal protection clause, and substantive due process clause. Additionally, if your company has a physical place of business, employees, assets, or licensing pertaining to another state, then the state where you operate and have significant contacts may require you register there with a certificate of authority, letting the headquarters and principal activity states know you are doing significant business there. This registration does not change the incorporation state, it is only a registry of foreign or out-of-state companies, in case someone needs to sue your company in its principal place of business.
