can a non resident/citizen form a company in florida
2 Answers from Attorneys
Yes. Your options are either an LLC or a C-Corp. An S-Corp requires legal residency.
Remember, however, that owning the entity does not mean that you can legally work the entity in the US. This is still a personal immigration issue. So if you are here in the US working you need a valid visa.
If you need clarification, I suggest that you consult with a lawyer in private and discuss your objectives in more detail. You can start by calling around to several for a free phone consultation, get some insights then pick the best fit to work with.
If you would like to discuss further over a free phone consult, feel free to contact me anytime that is convenient.
