  • Federal Tax ID Number Obtained (Includes 8832 Filing)

    Federal Tax ID (EIN) Obtainment Service

    Businesses must have a Federal Tax ID Number, also called an employer identification number (EIN). With NCP's Tax ID Obtainment Service, we will obtain your company's EIN from the IRS once the state approves your business formation and you have returned via email the signed SS-4 application.

    Since you are outside the U.S., the IRS has changed the process, and we will need to fax the SS-4 application to the IRS, and it will take about 9-12 business days to secure the EIN. The IRS EIN letter will come about two to three weeks later.

    [Key point]: The SS4 must be completed properly. Especially online 9a, which must align with the correct U.S. tax return.

    Mistakes on the SS4 are complicated to fix with the IRS. If the owner of your US LLC is a foreign entity, we will need a separate EIN. The fee for a second EIN is separate. 8832 must be filed for the LLC in most situations, and the ownership structure will determine how the form is completed. The 8832 is included in our packages.

    Our team has a complex spreadsheet internally that tax firms have reviewed to ensure you are going to file the correct U.S. tax returns related to your business situation.

  • U.S. Basic Virtual Address Service 12-Months

We have an upgraded version if you have multiple entity names, including UNLIMITED business and personal names. Includes a real physical address that will work for both U.S. bank account options. Our Las address service provides a lease agreement if your merchant provider requires one. As an e-commerce seller on Amazon.com, Walmart, eBay, or other marketplaces, it is critical that you receive your mail scanned to you on a timely basis. Sales tax compliance is essential after the U.S. Supreme Court Wayfair vs. South Dakota decision in June 2018. If your company is registered in multiple states to collect and remit sales tax, it will help your sales tax registration process to use our address for all the mail that will come from the state for each registration. Even if you don't expect much mail, our service options will support you to have both a premium U.S. address plus have the occasional piece of email scanned to you for notification. You will want the IRS letter to come to our address after applying for your EIN. [Update] Our new banking partner does not require the IRS letter upfront; the EIN can be pending. Our team will scan or scan and forward your mail based on your requests. Fees for scanning or forwarding are separate. Our address service does include five free scans per month.*

Nevada Corporate Planners, Inc. was established in 1997 in Nevada.

OTHER SERVICES & FEES
State Filing Fees

State filing fees vary based upon the state and type of entity. A Wyoming LLC is $100, and a Nevada LLC is $425.

Mail Scanning and Forwarding

Our U.S. virtual address service provides your U.S. legal address and, as needed, scanning and mail forwarding options. You will likely have only a few key pieces of mail throughout your first year, yet, they are all important, which may include verification notices from Amazon or Walmart, EIN confirmation letters from the IRS, Insurance, banking, or trademark notifications. Our scanning and mail forwarding is the best industry because of our knowledgeable team and support.

U.S. Bank Account (if required)

You may be working with Payoneer, a free account, and if you need a separate, fully functioning U.S. bank account to set up Stripe or Shopify Payments, we can help. [Update] Our new banking partner does not require the IRS letter upfront; the EIN can be pending.

Physical Record Book

Including operating agreements/bylaws, minutes, resolutions, instructions, and shipping outside the U.S., the packages include an online digital version of the record book.

A physical record book is not required but an option if you prefer a physical book.

Resale/Exemption Certificate

A resale certificate is a document proving that you are a legitimate retailer or purchaser and are buying products to resell or use as parts of products you plan to resell.

To use a resale certificate, you generally need to be registered to collect sales tax in at least one U.S. state. Our team will register your new company in a state and obtain your resales/exemption certificate.

Dun & Bradstreet Number

The D-U-N-S Number is used to establish your company’s D&B® file. It is requested but not required to sell on Walmart.

A Second EIN (if required)

If you form an LLC and the member (owner) will be your foreign entity, we will need to apply for an EIN for the foreign entity.

This is required to file the U.S. return in connection with the tax treaty with your country. Most common is the 1120F, along with form 8833.

If this is your situation, the SS4 application for the U.S. entity will require your signature as the responsible party. The IRS no longer allows you to use your foreign entity EIN to apply for the U.S. EIN. That changed in 2020.

We can move forward and apply via fax for the EIN on your U.S. LLC. The EIN for your foreign entity we call over the phone (when we get through to the IRS).

Trade Name/DBA

If you are using or planning to use a trade name separately from your new entity name, we will file a DBA (doing business as) in the state of formation.

Amazon Brand Registry Example:
When you set up your Amazon account, you will have your brand name and sold-by name. Your seller name is easy to change on your Amazon account.

The brand name leads to the brand store page and is linked to registered and trademarked brands. The brand name does not match your entity name.

Nationwide Trademark Search & Filing

A trademark is a protected word, phrase, symbol, or design that identifies your business and distinguishes it from other businesses. This is important for Amazon’s brand registry and overall brand protection. It is not required but recommended.

Local Utility Service & Bill

If you don’t update your Amazon Seller Central account correctly with your new details, it may trigger a notice to provide more verification. The critical item is an accepted utility bill or business license matching your Amazon account’s company and address.

We can provide this service for Nevada entities only with our address service for our clients.

This service is optional when the correct steps are followed with our Amazon checklist. Our clients that follow our steps EXACTLY do NOT need an extra utility bill (which may cost more than the entity formation).

Please take a look at our utility bill example below. It will be in your company name.

NCP-Client-Utility-Bill-Example

ITIN

An ITIN will come into play if a 1040NR U.S. tax return is required by filing form W-7, along with 8833. In this situation, the fee is part of filing your U.S. personal tax returns.

If you need an ITIN after your U.S. entity formation, the most common is to provide you with more options with your U.S. formation when you open a Stripe account or Paypal account.

If you are forming an LLC taxed as a corporation (creating a U.S. taxpayer), obtaining an ITIN up front is not going to happen, but we have a work around approved by our tax team for our clients.

Certificate of Insurance (COI)

If you received your 30-day notice from Amazon, our process is to form your LLC correctly and refer you to our recommended U.S. insurance provider.

Our services include the steps to change and not to change on Amazon to get your COI approved by Amazon.

We have a 100% success rate when you follow our steps.

The IRS time frame is about 9-12 business days. The  EIN confirmation letter, CP 575, is mailed to our address within about two to three weeks after the EIN is obtained.

U.S. Banking

[Update] Our new banking partner does not require the IRS letter upfront; the EIN can be pending.

Additional Services

  • Resale Certificate: After entity formation, this may take 3-5 business days after you submit our sales tax application.

Ordering FAQs

Why don't you automate the online filing process in minutes?

While our competitors may offer an automated online filing process that can be completed in just a few minutes, our approach to forming U.S. companies is quite different to protect your brand.

We believe relying solely on automation can lead to mistakes, which is why our service is higher.

Our team of real people will thoroughly review your information before forming your company, and we will often correct potential errors based on what you want to achieve. You can’t amend an SS4, so it must align with your U.S. company goals and foreign ownership.

One of the keys is the Amazon verification. We understand the Amazon verification process for a new Amazon Seller Account, and what must be consistent on the filed articles and your address to help you avoid a utility bill, which, if needed, we can provide, but the goal is to avoid that expense. All of this is part of our review process.

How your LLC is set up, the management structure, and who are the owners will impact your U.S. taxes and we want that to line up to how we complete your SS4 from the start.

Our team consists of experts reviewing the information you submit, and our CEO also reviews all filings.

We pride ourselves on providing a personalized, thorough service that considers your needs and goals.

While automation may seem quick and easy, our approach ensures you receive the best possible outcome for your U.S. company formation.

What are some of the key questions I should ask before and during a U.S. entity formation?

Our process to help you form a U.S. company is the most complete. We understand you may need to learn all the questions to ask. We will bring them up with our training and double-check your choices.

In the big picture, we would like to know which marketplaces you are planning to sell on. For example, are you selling on Amazon.com, dropshipping, or have a private label product? Are you planning to sell on Shopify also, which impacts sales tax?

Do you need a U.S. entity for Amazon insurance because you have a high-risk product and you can’t get coverage in your home account, or if you can, it is costly?

The foundation of the filing of the LLC articles and the management structure that will give you the most flexibility for U.S. taxation, banking, ownership… Should your LLC be managed by managers or members? It seems simple, yet it is an important question that most online companies get wrong, and it will impact your business on many levels.

I have a list of considerations we recommend you evaluate during our entity formation process.

How do you help me determine which state and entity are best and my U.S. tax responsibilities for my situation?

Our U.S. entity packages do not require knowing which state or entity before starting.

We have four options for support.

First, our packages include a brand-new comprehensive video training by our CEO that includes details on multiple U.S. tax scenarios, strategies for starting a new Amazon account vs. forming an entity to update your existing Amazon account (which is different), Amazon insurance, U.S. sales tax requirements, selling on Walmart, or looking to qualify for Shopify payments, and which state and entity is best based upon these variables.

We cover the new banking changes and U.S. taxpayer requirements and summarize the most common and best options. After watching our comprehensive video, you may complete our webform to submit to our team with your entity’s details.

Second, you may choose a one-on-one Zoom strategy call with our CEO, Scott Letourneau, to help clarify your U.S. expansion and strategy. Go to this link for more details on packages and pricing.

Third, you may join our strategic consulting programs that give you access to send our team unlimited strategy questions via email to support you for either 90 days or 12 months.

Fourth, if you need more clarity on our most updated packages and other services that may or may not apply to your situation, you may schedule a discovery call with our team at this link.

Our team will also review your submission after getting started to ensure it lines up with our SS4 application and your U.S. tax return responsibilities.

How do you help me avoid filing mistakes that may create unwanted issues down the road?

Our team will manually review the information you submitted on our web form. We are training to look for inconsistencies.

For example, did you want an LLC taxed as a partnership, which may trigger three U.S. tax returns if you are engaged in a U.S. trade or business with effectively connected income (or did you check on the wrong box for how your LLC would be taxed)? Perhaps you needed to create a U.S. tax person to work with Mercury for banking.

Do you want the start date for an LLC to be before the end of the year or at the start of the new year?

The information for the SS4 is crucial to determine future U.S. tax return responsibilities. Our team will review what was submitted based on our internal IRS tax chart.

Finally, our CEO reviews every U.S. entity filed by our team. Our team will email you if questions arise to clarify any concerns before filing.

When do I pay the state filing fee for my U.S. entity formation?

After step 2 below, when you submit your web form with your type of entity and state, your state and entity type will determine your state fees, and our team will send you a separate email for payment.

Our training video goes into the pluses and minutes of each state regarding overall liability protection, taxes, and the ability to obtain a utility bill or business license for Amazon verification.

The good news is that you don’t need to know which state and type of entity before you start with NCP. Our video training will help guide you through your best options.

How much stock will be issued (for corporations)?

We will authorize the minimum amount of stock for each state. Some states have a higher filing fee based on the number of shares and par value. Nevada, for example, at 75,000 shares at no par value, equates to a $75 state filing fee, their lowest level.

Keep in mind, if you select an LLC taxed as a corporation, there are membership units not stock issued. NCP does incorporate in all 50 states, even though we are headquartered in Las Vegas, NV.

If you have a special request for more stock to be authorized and a different par value, we will send you a separate price quote before we file your corporation.

What is the time frame to form my U.S. LLC or Corporation and obtain the EIN number?

The time to file your LLC or Corporation will depend on which state and how fast you can give us the information on steps 2 & 3 of our process.

Some states, like Nevada and Wyoming, can be filed within 24-48 hours of steps 2 & 3 being completed; others, like California, may take 2-3 weeks. States do offer expedited options in most cases, if necessary.

Update: An EIN for a U.S. entity where the responsible party does not have an SSN or ITIN takes 9-12 business days (January 2024). Our new banking partner does not require the IRS letter upfront; the EIN can be pending.

What happens after I submit my order?

After you submit your payment, you will go to our thank you page to our next steps link to complete our web form.

This link includes our special video training and tips on the best state and entity. We cover the major marketplaces and the required U.S. tax strategies and returns, including the best state.

If you miss the link on the thank you page, we also send you a welcome email with the same link to get started.

Please check your junk folder for an email from support@launchwithconfidence.com if you don’t see the welcome email within 10-15 minutes of payment. Our leading brand, Nevada Corporate Planners, Inc. (NCP), will appear on your merchant account receipt.

Do you help with foreign qualification services?

Yes. If your entity has physical nexus in another state and it is required to foreign qualify or register we have separate services to help you with that process also. Learn more at this link.

Do you help with the filing of any U.S. tax returns that may be required?

Yes. We work with a group of top CPA firms (and tax attorneys) that specialize in filing U.S. tax returns that may be required. That may include the 1120 or 1120F protective return, along with the 8833 treaty disclosure, or form 5472, the pro-forma 1120, 1040NR, and the W-7. Tax return fees are separate from our U.S. entity formation packages.

How is working with NCP different than other online LLC and corporate formation companies?

At NCP, we don’t just help you form an LLC online – we go above and beyond to ensure your e-commerce business can successfully expand to multiple U.S. marketplaces.

We understand that forming an LLC is just the first step. The real challenge lies in connecting the dots to ensure your LLC is structured correctly, connected to the correct address, platform, and banking, and ready to pass the Amazon tax interview process and Shopify payments verification.

As U.S. e-commerce experts with over 27 years of experience, we have helped countless sellers worldwide navigate the complex landscape of U.S. marketplaces.

We know what it takes to avoid common mistakes that can result in your account being suspended or deactivated, and we have solutions to help you get back on track if this does happen.

What sets us apart from other companies is that we have a team of experts behind the scenes who specialize in solving U.S. tax issues that you may need to learn to exist.

We have seen many clients come to us after making costly mistakes with their “basic filings,” and our tax partners have had to deal with years of IRS issues for these clients – issues that ended up costing them ten times what they paid for the “basic U.S. LLC” formation.

Take your time with your e-commerce business. Trust the experts at NCP to help you navigate the complex landscape of U.S. marketplaces and ensure your business is set up for success.

Beyond file the U.S. LLC, are you able to help with my U.S. insurance requirements for Amazon.com?

Yes, we can guide you through the entire process. We realize that most sellers do NOT care about insurance, but they do care about checking this box, so Amazon will keep their account active.

We also understand that some sellers are very concerned about U.S. liability, and they want to know if they invest in a U.S. insurance policy, they will be covered (most will not be because of how the insurance is tied to Amazon).

We have trained reps directly at Amazon in Europe on this process and past sales tax requirements, which have now changed.

We understand the requirements of Amazon and our top U.S. product liability insurance provider to ensure you follow all the steps so your company can avoid getting suspended or having account activation issues.

We understand what must line up regarding addresses on your account and banking with our connections at Amazon. We will provide you with a recommendation to our insurance provider, plus one of our bonuses includes a complete Amazon transition checklist.

If you need to form a U.S. LLC to obtain a U.S. certificate of insurance that will provide coverage for your Amazon.com business, click here to schedule that call.

Do you help with sales tax compliance?

Yes. We have filed thousands of sales tax registrations since 2015. We work with many online sellers who have crossed economic thresholds and need to obtain a sales tax permit before turning on your sales tax shopping cart collections, whether that is in Shopify, Woocommerce, or others.

We have the best rates to get you registered in the non-streamline states. We work with non-residents who do not have an SSN, meaning we may need to fax or mail the sales tax application in a few states.

We are partnered with all the sales tax remitting companies, and to use the software companies, a U.S. bank account is required to do an ACH pull to remit sales tax automatically.

How do your bonuses help me with my entity formation next steps?

We have over $6K of bonuses designed to tie in your new entity formation correctly to setting up an Amazon account without extra verification or to put you in a position to qualify for Shopify payments, a Walmart approval as a U.S. taxpayer, for example.

Plus, we have several bonuses that help you comply with sales tax if you sell on non-marketplaces. Many of our bonuses help with LLC compliance, so if your U.S. LLC is sued, the entity veil will be protected so as not to impact the owner of the LLC.

Big shoutout to Scott and the wonderful team at NCP for going above and beyond to help us recently through their virtual address service.

Scott and his team are rock-solid in their support. Setting up a business and doing most things business-related very rarely go smoothly without unexpected hiccups. I am so relieved to have them help me through each unexpected hiccup. They patiently explain everything and have a wealth of knowledge and resources at your disposal. The few dollars more I spent using NCP are worth their weight in gold because it means I am not left with my own frustrations and confusion when I run into the inevitable obstacles along the way.
