Our main site abstractly discusses various asset protection strategies, e.g. holding companies, asset protection trusts and Wyoming LLCs. Abstract discussion is a fine place to start, but doesn't tell you whether any one strategy is a good fit for your situation. That is why we created this blog.

Holding companies are popular vehicles for managing various assets, income streams, protecting assets and privacy, along with simplifying tax returns. There are many benefits, but some additional complexity, which must be considered.

Part of this expansion entails creating pages specific to those states, e.g. how to form a California LLC or Delaware LLC benefits. We write these through the lense of providing advice on asset protection, anonymity and lowering taxes.
Delaware companies are popular for international clients and those seeking to raise funds. The fees are generally higher, especially for Corporations, but investors often demand this jurisdiction so it's best to be informed.
California has one of the world's largest economies and real estate markets. If it was its own country it would be in the top 10 for GDP. This activity drives significant business formations, along with a desire for privacy as CA LLCs make much information public.
Texas companies require the member of the LLC to be listed. For this reason we advise forming an anonymous LLC in WY, DE or NM to act as the parent or holding company. This provides privacy and asset protection for those doing business in TX.
Florida companies are commonly used for real estate, but require the disclosure of member and manager information. Our anonymous formation service avoids this.
Arizona is among the strictest states for requiring ownership information. This applies to foreign registered LLCs as well.
