Why We Offer Delaware Company, Banking and Fidcuiary Services A little information about how we got started. For many years we placed our clients with third party registered agents; most are “big-box” providers where we were just a number. The customer service did not meet our expectations. As a result, we started providing our personalized registered agent services for our law firm customers and others, like yourself. We are also experts on Florida and Wyoming company formations, so if you need legal or tax advice, we will gladly help you. Click Here to View Our Price List and the services we provide.

Hedge Fund Banking and Brokerage Services For either banking or brokerage services, you cannot use your personal account as the hedge fund’s account. The hedge fund needs its own bank and brokerage account. In the United States, bank accounts can be opened over the Internet in some cases with very modest initial deposits. In addition, operating costs—such as monthly bank maintenance fees - are relatively low in the United States when compared to most other countries. Banking in the United States presents a lesser burden to a hedge fund sponsor than banking in most other parts of the world. U.S. banks and brokers generally do not require a hedge fund’s investment manager to be licensed by a regulator in order to open accounts unless the investment manager is based in a jurisdiction that requires such licensing. For these reasons, the United States presents an extremely attractive option for sponsors of smaller hedge funds. Need help with banking and brokerage arrangements? We have solutions!

Why a Delaware Hedge Fund? In the United States, hedge funds are found chiefly in Delaware. U.S. hedge funds are established primarily in Delaware because Delaware offers the most advanced business friendly law in the United States. Pro-management corporate law serves as the reason for setting up a U.S. hedge fund in Delaware. The reason for this is that Delaware has a sophisticated Court of Chancery that focuses on company law. This Court has reputation for being pro-management and efficient when adjudicating disputes between investors and hedge fund management. Given the depth, predictability and friendliness of Delaware's body of company law decisions and given that hedge fund operations result in a significant division between ownership interests (i.e., investors) and control (i.e. fund management), it makes sense to set up a hedge fund in Delaware.
What is Service of Process? Service of Process (SOP) is a legal procedure used most commonly to notify a defendant that a law suit has been initiated against it by a suing party (plaintiff). Service documents usually consist of a summons and complaint. The summons serves as official notice that a suit has been initiated against a defendant and compels a response to the claim within a certain time frame after service documents are accepted by a registered agent, usually 20 days. If the defendant fails to respond timely, the court may find the defendant in default and award a judgment in favor of the plaintiff.
U.S. Bank Accounts If you need a bank account in the U.S. you must either come to the United States so the bank can verify your ID, in person. In some cases, we can work with a large U.S. bank that may open an account for you without coming to the United States. We also offer banking fiduciary and trustee services should you want to open a U.S. bank account for your new business. Contact Us for Assistance
How to Get Started We accept PayPal, Master Card, Visa, Checks, and Wire Transfers. If you are not located in the United States or are not a U.S. Citizen and need a U.S. company, we can establish one for you. You do not have to be a U.S. citizen to own a U.S. C-Corporation or LLC (limited liability corporation). We will need your contact information, the name that you want to use for your company, who is going to be the director of the company along with a scan of that person's passport and payment. The only limitation is that you can not start an S-Corporation.
We can have the company established and the IRS tax number issued within seven (7) business days. The costs are the same for you as they are for anyone else, except for the cost of shipping via International FedEx service so that you can get the package in a timely manner. Please note, we can not establish companies for you if you are from Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Western Balkans, Burma, Liberia, Zimbabwe or if your name appears on the OFAC list of blocked persons or companies.

Delaware Company Law is Protective Delaware corporate law affords directors and officers a great deal of discretion in managing the business free from the undue interference of shareholders and regulators. Delaware's highly regarded reputation stems from the Court of Chancery that focuses solely on company law. The Court of Chancery has earned a reputation for fairness and decisiveness when hearing disputes between investors and hedge fund managers. Indeed, the Delaware “brand” of company law has been "exported" to several other countries. Moreover, Delaware is one of the most protective jurisdictions in the world of proprietary information. The issue of privacy extends beyond Delaware's borders to other U.S. states.
In addition to Delaware, Florida and Wyoming are considered advantageous places to set up a U.S. company. In any event, given the depth, privacy, predictability and pro-business cast of Delaware's company law, it makes good business sense to set up a business in Delaware.
Why do I need a registered agent and a registered office? A registered agent is a representative appointed in a business entity's corporate registration documents with responsibility to accept: service of process, annual reports, tax notices, and official agency correspondence intended for the company. As the statutorily required company representative "to receive and forward any legal service of process served on the entity during litigation," a registered agent's primary responsibility is to forward service documents to the appropriate contact within the company in a timely manner. The requirement to maintain a registered agent is a matter of consumer protection. State laws require a registered agent to ensure a company representative is easily accessible to a process server to accept Service of Process in case the company is sued.
A business entity should maintain a registered agent who is reliable and experienced. Many business entities will not appoint an employee or company officer as their registered agent as they usually have no experience in legal matters. If service material is not handled in a timely fashion it could result in a default monetary judgment against the company. Laws require a corporate entity to name a registered agent in their corporate documents. A registered agent must always remain on record or the entity could be administratively dissolved. Laws require the registered agent to be physically located in the state of business with a street address for accessibility. Post office boxes are not allowed.
A registered agent should maintain accessibility to their physical location during normal business work hours without closure, except holidays. In most states, a registered agent can be an individual or business entity, however, a business entity cannot act as its own registered agent. Annual reports, tax notices and other official correspondence are also forwarded to the registered agent in many states, so domestic entities should also retain a registered agent to ensure important documents are properly received and handled. Failure to file an annual report could cause the company to lose its good standing and liability protection. Our registered agent services, through Capital Services Group, LLC are offered out of Bethany Beach, Delaware. Contact Us for Assistance
