Incorporate In Indiana

With major industries including manufacturing, agriculture, and pharmaceuticals, Indiana is an attractive place for investments.

Ranked in 2011 as the best place in the Midwest to do business, Indiana offers many resources such as a culturally diverse workforce and well-developed educational and infrastructure systems.

Benefits of incorporating in Indiana:

Protection of personal assets

Foreign entrepreneurs will enjoy a separation of personal and business assets when incorporating in Indiana. If your business builds up debts, your personal assets cannot be seized to clear them.

Flexible Tax Structures to Suit Your Business

Indiana tax law is flexible. Your entity may be taxed as a corporation or as part of the members’ or shareholders’ personal incomes, depending on your choice of tax structure.

Greater Credibility and Reputation

Becoming a legal corporation or LLC gives an impression of a much more solid and trustworthy business than a simple sole proprietorship.

This can lead to increased sales, and preferential dealings with suppliers and investors. Choosing a compliant incorporation name for your Indiana business is your chance to establish a strong identity, and we can help you find a suitable name to build your brand around.

Access to a Full US Bank Account

Having a US-based bank account can make business for overseas entrepreneurs much easier to conduct.

Major online players such as Amazon often require such an account before allowing access to their partner programs, for example. Setting up an LLC or C Corporation in Indiana opens up this possibility.
