Q: Why do I need a USBPP?
A: You need a USBPP if you want to setup a US Corporate bank account or a US Business PayPal account or any other accounts or contracts that require a company, tax id, and a US office.
Q: What is the USBPP?
A: The US Business Presence Package includes the formation of your Delaware Corporation or LLC, the retrieval of your EIN and the setup of your US office address & mail forwarding account.
Q: What is the $100 postage deposit for?
A: You'll see your $100 initial postage deposit in your member's area online. When we forward flat mail or packages to you we'll debit your postage deposit. Some clients go through it quickly and others more slowly. When it gets low we send you an email reminding you to top up so that your mail forwarding service is not interrupted.
Q: Does the USBPP include the setup of my US Corporate bank account?
A: Yes! But there are a few exceptions. They can’t currently open accounts for founders living in the following countries: Afghanistan, Albania, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Belize, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brunei Darussalam, Burundi, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Congo, Cote d'lvoire, Cuba, Cyprus, Dominica, Ecuador, Estonia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guyana, Haiti, Herzegovina, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Los People's Democratic Republic, Mongolia, Morocco, Namibia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Nigeria, North Korea, Pakistan, Panama, Papa New Guinea, Paraguay, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Sao Tome and Principe, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Suriname, Syrian Arab Republic, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Vanuatu, Venezuela, Vietnam, Yemen, and Zimbabwe. Approval is ultimately up to the bank so we can't guarantee the account will stay open, just that we will attempt to open it for you if you don't live in one of the above countries..

A: Please see our US Bank account option page.

It all happens very quickly!
