Frequently asked questions
Delaware is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern regions of the United States. On December 7, 1787, Delaware became the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, and has since promoted itself as “The First State”.
Delaware’s fourth and current constitution, adopted in 1897, provides for executive, judicial and legislative branches. The Delaware General Assembly consists of a House of Representatives with 41 members and a Senate with 21 members. It sits in Dover, the state capital. Representatives are elected to two-year terms, while senators are elected to four-year terms. The Senate confirms judicial and other nominees appointed by the governor.
Delaware General Corporation Law, which forms the basis of the Delaware Court’s opinions, is widely regarded as giving great flexibility to corporations to manage their affairs. For these reasons, Delaware is considered to have the most business-friendly legal system in the United States, thus a great number of companies are incorporated in Delaware, including 60% of the companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
A single-member Delaware LLC for non-US residents that do not elect to be treated as a corporation will be classified as a “disregarded entity”. Single-member LLCs are not recognized by the IRS and therefore pay no taxes at all. Instead, the tax liability is passed through to the member.
Audit and financial returns: Delaware LLC is not required to file state or federal tax returns. Whilst there is no requirement to file audited accounts or annual returns with the authorities, a company is required to keep financial records, which should reflect the financial position of a company. An Annual Report is required only in cases, where there is a distribution of profits to US residents.

By allowing you to file anonymously, Delaware laws shield the identities and personal information of business owners. The State of Delaware does not require the names and addresses of LLC members and managers to be made public. Legal proceedings or law enforcement actions are the only two circumstances under which this information must be revealed.
