  • What is the best business structure?
    It is not that there is a better and a worse business structure. All were created with the objective of benefiting specific activities and ways of operating. Currently, for a person who has recently arrived in the US, it is recommended to create an LLC. A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a type of business entity that combines certain characteristics of a corporation and a limited partnership (partnership). Some of the features of an LLC include: Limited Liability: The members (owners) of the LLC have limited liability for the debts and obligations of the company, meaning that their personal liability is limited to their investment in the company. Tax Flexibility: Unlike corporations, LLCs do not have a specific tax structure, allowing them to choose their tax treatment as either a pass-through entity or an entity taxed as a corporation. Flexible management structure: LLCs can be managed directly by their members or have a management team, depending on the needs of the company. Growth and financing: LLCs have the ability to attract investors and financing, and can be used to finance a variety of business activities. Simplified Documentation: LLCs generally have fewer documentation and reporting requirements than corporations, making them easier to manage and maintain.

  • If my social code says “not valid for employment”, can I open a business in the US?
    You cannot open a business in the US with a Social Security number that is not valid for employment, also known as a "non-employment SSN."

However, if a person does not have a work permit but still wants to open a business in the United States, they can apply for a tax identification number (EIN) through the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The EIN is a nine-digit number used to identify a company in the US tax system and can be obtained without needing a valid SSN for employment.
  • How long does it take to register an LLC?
    The time it takes to register an LLC (Limited Liability Company) in the United States can vary depending on several factors, including the state in which you are registering the LLC and the method you choose to file paperwork. In general, though, here's a general guide to how long it might take: Documentation Preparation: Before registering, you must prepare the necessary documentation, such as the name of the LLC, business address, members or managers of the LLC, and other details according to state regulations. Submission of Documentation: Submission of documents can be done online, by mail or in person, depending on the state. Filing online is usually the quickest option. If you file by mail or in person, it may take longer due to the shipping and processing process. State Processing: The LLC processing process in the state varies. Some states process applications faster than others. Some states offer expedited processing services for an additional fee. Approval and Final Documentation: Once the state approves your application and the registration process is complete, you will receive official documents confirming the creation of the LLC, such as the articles of organization. In many states, the registration process can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. In some cases, especially if you choose expedited processing services, it may be possible to register an LLC in just a few days. However, on average, the entire process could be expected to take 1 to 4 weeks. It is important to check the specific requirements and deadlines in the state where you are registering the LLC, as regulations can vary significantly. Additionally, please consider that during certain periods of the year, such as tax seasons, processing may take longer due to high demand.

  • What is the difference between making a logo or a visual identity for the business?
    The logo and visual identity are two interrelated but distinct concepts in graphic design and creating a brand image for a business. Here I explain their differences: Logo: A logo is a simplified and distinctive visual representation of a business, brand or product. It is usually an image, symbol, or set of letters used to visually identify the company. The logo is an essential part of the visual identity, but it is not the complete identity by itself. An effective logo should be memorable, simple and versatile as it will be used in different contexts and marketing materials. Visual identity: Visual identity is a broader and more complete set of visual elements that represent a company or brand. It goes beyond the logo and encompasses all the visual aspects that communicate the brand's personality and values. This can include corporate colors, typography, patterns, illustrations, photography, graphics, stationery design, website design, social media elements and more. The visual identity ensures visual coherence at all points of contact with the public, which helps establish a strong and recognizable image of the brand. In short, while a logo is a specific and distinctive part of visual identity, visual identity is a broader, cohesive system of visual elements that work together to create a complete and coherent visual representation of a company or brand. Both are essential to building a strong and recognizable brand in the market.
