What is the best way to incorporate a UK startup company in the U.S?

The three entities most founders consider in the US are:

1) C-corp
2) LLC
3) S-corp

You need to first figure out if you’ll be seeking outside investors. An LLC is cheap and fast to do but it doesn’t allow for shareholders, so if you plan on bringing on investors then they might request you do a C-corp. VCs in particular have structures that don’t permit them to invest in LLCs.

Your US based startup lawyer will help you determine which state to actually incorporate in as there are certain “advantages” in incorporating in Delaware v. New York v. the state in which you business will operate.
