There are 2 ways of forming an LLC company, which differ by the level of privacy:
1st option – Apart from company name, registry date, registered address and information about the registered agent, the documents will also include the name of the managing member (owner).
2nd option – Includes all information from Option 1 but without the names of the company managing members/owners being listed on the Certificate of Formation. This is the only document available to the public and besides you, Registered Agent and the Formation Agent (Euro Commerce LLC), no one has access to the company ownership structure. You manage the company with the ‘Power of Attorney’. These documents are not made public. They are issued by the Registered Agent in the USA (legally responsible for the company’s registration), notarized and certified with Apostille confirming their veracity and authenticity.
Although »Certificate of Formation« is a public document and can be ordered from the Delaware Corporate Registry, it is not published on the internet, or in any other print form. The procedure to obtain a copy of this document is not easy, but it is possible to get hold of one.

Delaware is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern region 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.
What is Delaware LLC?
The Delaware LLC (Limited Liability Company) is the most flexible type of business entity offered by any state or country in the world. This is the reason why the LLC has become the entity of choice among many legal, accounting and business professionals. The structure of the company and the rules that govern the members of the company are contained in a contract called the LLC Operating Agreement, which is drafted by the members of the LLC. This means the terms and rules of each LLC can be tailored to accommodate the specific needs and preferences of an LLC. This is the biggest benefit of an LLC over any other form of business entity. This power is called freedom of contract.
Tax in Delaware
A single-member LLC that does 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.
Nominee Service consists of Nominee Member (shareholder) and Nominee Manager (director). Both, Corporate and Individual non-resident Nominee Members/Managers are available internationally.
Accounting and Audit
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.
Your LLC name must contain either the abbreviation LLC, L.L.C. or the words “Limited Liability Company.” If the name you select includes words in a foreign language, a translation must accompany the application for filing the formation.
