This information is crucial for us to be able to provide valuable advice and recommendations to you. Additionally, the initial consultation is a good opportunity for you to ask questions and to get a sense of our approach and style, which can help you decide whether to work with us! Initial consultation is a vital first step in establishing a successful business consulting relationship.

Bank Account

Important: This service is only offered as part of Business & Management Consulting package.

We stay as liaison between the bank and your company and help with opening the bank account. Some US banks may require additional documentation or representation. We also help with communication so that nothing is lost in translation.

Accounting Services

Basic accounting / bookkeeping operations for most common entity types. The cost of accounting varies based on the workload, but we can get you in a comfortable fee for the first 6 to 12 months until your operational load can be assessed.

Payroll, Workers Comp, Disabilty Ins etc

Being an employer in the US can be confusing for foreign operations. Every US State has different and minimum requirements, additional insurance, and taxation and filing expectations. Therefore the cost per employee fluctuates per state, per number of employees and type of work / clocked hours.

These are good concerns to have when you need them – that means your business is thriving! When the time is right, we can help you figure out the right providers and the right choices.

CPA / Corporate Tax Services

Corporate Tax filing is done once a year with estimated tax filings done quarterly throughout the fiscal year. Exact needs differ from sector to sector, entity type and expected revenue. Pricing of this service fluctuates by entity type, partnership structure and business / operation details. It’s safe to assume at least $1,000 per year for filing through a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) so that you are covered in case of an audit.

You don’t need a CPA for filing taxes, but in our experience the added cost is definitely worth for the peace of mind and a healthy growth. A good CPA can also help you save on certain items and make better financial decisions for a healthier fiscal outlook for short to medium term.

Business Attorney Services

Initial consulting is an additional $500 (Free with Business & Management Consulting), and we will engage you with the correct attorney. Usually, this service is needed for novel business ideas that require an attorney to be on retainer especially for healthcare, construction, investment – capital management purposes to make sure that the operation adheres to US rules and regulations.

Why Is This Necessary?

Product research is the process of gathering information about a potential product or service, including its target market, competition, and potential demand. This information is used to assess the feasibility and potential success of the product or service.

Product market fit refers to the degree to which a product or service meets the needs and desires of a specific target market. A product or service that has a strong product market fit is one that effectively addresses the problems or needs of its target market and is well-received by those customers.

Product research and product market fit are closely related and are important considerations for businesses when developing and launching new products or services. By conducting thorough product research and ensuring that a product has a strong product market fit, a business can increase the chances of success for its new product or service.

By conducting thorough product research and ensuring that a product has a strong product market fit, a business can increase the chances of success for its new product or service. This is because the business will have a better understanding of the needs and preferences of its target market and will be able to develop and offer a product that meets those needs and is likely to be successful.

 

Domain Name Registration Under Entity Account

Cost depends on the domain chosen and its availability and is done by the client.

Domain name needs to be thought of at the time of entity foundation so that the domain name matches the entity name. Domain name should be owned by the ownership should be on the individual who founded the entity.

Timing of this is important as entity foundations are public information, if you don’t buy the domain right away somebody else would and then try to sell it back to you.

  • SEO friendly implementation for better Google / search engine indexing

Service Fee

Why Is This Necessary?

A corporate website is still important and relevant because it serves as a key online presence for a business. It is a valuable source of information for customers, investors, and other stakeholders, and it helps a business to establish credibility and build its brand.

A corporate website can be used to showcase a business’s products or services, share company news and updates, and provide information about the business’s mission and values. It can also serve as a platform for customer support and engagement, allowing customers to easily access information and resources and to contact the business with questions or feedback.

In addition, it is an important tool for search engine optimization (SEO), as it can help a business to rank higher in search engine results and attract more traffic to its website. This can be particularly important for small businesses, as a strong online presence can help them to compete with larger companies and can help to support their growth and success.

E-Commerce Presence

Service Definition

Prerequisites for this service are, a legal-entity, a bank-account for receivables, a payment method for fees (US based Credit Card), product images, product descriptions and specs, accounting setup, order fulfillment, return and storage – not necessarily provided by our network but these business lines must be in working order for an e-commerce operation to be functional.

WooCommerce setup is included if you have purchased the Corporate Web Site package since they can exist on the same platform.

We recommend starting with WooCommerce and then adding an Amazon store one on top. WooCommerce will help with Google SEO / search results and product information purposes. Amazon would be the primary marketplace to sell with WooCommerce acting as secondary backup. Also, if Walmart is under consideration, then having Amazon + WooCommerce is a huge benefit since Walmart requires a pre-existing presence to let you sell on their marketplace.

If you have your brand Trade Marked / registered in your country, then we can apply for Brand Registry on Amazon. This will help a lot for marketplace presence on Amazon.com – there is no additional fee for this.

Service Fee

$4,000 per marketplace setup (Amazon, Walmart, Shopify, Etsy)

Product Creation, Entry & Marketplace Management

Each marketplace requires its own product identifiers, registration, and management. Therefore, we recommend preparing all necessary information before attempting any entry on any platform. Basic information required per product:

  • UPC/EAN
  • Product Specs
  • FDA/EPA registration, fees
  • Proper labeling
  • Product title and description in native English commensurate with the marketplace expectations.
  • Digital assets: at least 7 pictures per product, commensurate with the marketplace requirements.

 

  • Amazon ASIN creation and entry first product is free. $1,000 per ASIN after that
  • Walmart product creation and entry first product is free. $1,000 per SKU after that
  • Woo Commerce, Etsy, Shopify product creation and entry: $250 per product (free if you purchased Amazon or Walmart E-Commerce Presence package)

Each marketplace presence requires constant management, from customer service to returns to order fulfillment.

For our clients who purchased Amazon or Walmart E-Commerce Presence package we don’t charge for revenue fee until store revenue reaches $2,500/mnth; after that we charge 5% of the sales total per month as revenue fee.

Each marketplace presence management fee is $1,500 /mnth.

CRM Selection, Setup, Training

Service Definition

There are free-tier, simple CRM solutions that can be setup and utilized right away; as well as more enterprise solutions that are integrated to your communications stack, such as Microsoft Dynamics (CRM) + Ring Central (Phone Calls) + Teams (Meetings, Calendar, Meeting notes, Document Repository)

Maybe not an immediate need, a CRM solution is highly recommended for businesses that will engage customers on marketplaces such as Amazon.com, Walmart.com where timely response is not just encouraged but will impact store availability. A CRM, as opposed to just using email will help centralize information and team coherence. More than one person can monitor tickets, issues and customer communications which also makes team building, training expanding much easier.

Why Is This Necessary?

CRM, or customer relationship management, is a type of software that helps businesses manage their interactions with customers and clients. It can be used to store and organize customer data, track customer interactions and inquiries, and manage customer relationships. Using a CRM can be beneficial for a business because it can help the business better understand and serve its customers, leading to increased customer satisfaction and loyalty. It can also help the business streamline and automate its customer-related processes, saving time and resources. In addition, a CRM can provide valuable insights and analytics that can help the business make informed decisions about its marketing and sales strategies. Overall, a CRM can help a business improve its customer relationships, drive sales and revenue, and increase efficiency.

A strong corporate identity is important because it helps to establish a unique and recognizable presence for a business. It can differentiate the business from its competitors and help to build customer loyalty. A well-designed corporate identity can also help to convey the values and personality of a business, and to create a cohesive look and feel across all the company’s marketing materials and communications.

In addition, a strong corporate identity can help to build credibility and trust with customers, investors, and other stakeholders. It can also support the business’s growth and success by helping to create a cohesive and professional image that resonates with its target audience.

Advertising

  • Performance Ads
    • Social media; micro influencer; online ads for targeted sales increase campaigns
  • Brand Recognition and Awareness
    • Media campaign planning and management for physical / traditional media advertising; online ads; product launch events; macro influencer engagements

Why Is This Necessary?

Advertising on social media can be an effective way for a business to establish brand awareness because it allows the business to reach a large, targeted audience. Social media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, have billions of users, and they offer a variety of advertising options that allow businesses to target their ads to specific demographics, interests, and locations. This means that businesses can reach the people who are most likely to be interested in their products or services, increasing the chances that their ads will be seen and remembered.

In addition, social media advertising allows businesses to track the effectiveness of their ads in real-time, providing valuable insights into what is and is not working. This allows businesses to adjust and optimize their campaigns to get the best results.

Advertising on social media can be a powerful tool for establishing brand awareness and driving traffic and sales to a business’s website or physical location.

Conventional advertising, which includes traditional media such as television, radio, and print, can still be an important part of a brand’s marketing strategy for several reasons.

First, conventional advertising can reach a broad audience. Television, radio, and print media could reach a large number of people, and this can be especially useful for brands that are trying to establish a presence or reach new customers.

Second, conventional advertising can be more memorable and impactful than some forms of digital advertising. Because traditional media ads are typically more expensive and have fewer slots available, they can stand out more and be more likely to be noticed and remembered by the audience.

Finally, conventional advertising can be a good way for a brand to build trust and credibility. Because traditional media outlets are often considered more reputable and trustworthy than some online sources, advertising through these channels can help a brand establish itself as a credible and reliable source of information or products.

While digital advertising can be an important part of a brand’s marketing strategy, conventional advertising can still play a role in building brand awareness and reaching a wide audience.

Service Fee

  • $500 Initial consulting (Free for existing clients)

Content Creation

Service Definition

Ongoing content creation for corporate website to maintain a dynamic presence and to increase organic traffic. This is NOT the same as advertising or marketing activities; but for creating a more professional and established online footprint. Think of it in terms of posting blogs on your website as well as your targeted social media platform routinely. These are not meant to advertise products – though cleverly placed product references inside the content can achieve that result – but more of a voice of the business.

  • Social media
    • Image, video, copywriting, animation
  • Blog posts
    • Corporate website, LinkedIn, Industry Journals

Why Is This Necessary?

Creating content is a challenging endeavor for most businesses.

Time and resources: Developing high-quality content can be time-consuming and require a significant investment of resources, including research, writing, editing, and design.

Writing skills: Not everyone has strong writing skills, and even those who do may struggle to find the right words or to effectively convey their message.

Idea generation: It can be difficult to come up with fresh and original ideas for content, especially on a consistent basis.

Audience targeting: Crafting content that resonates with a specific target audience can be challenging, as it requires a deep understanding of their needs, interests, and preferences.

Quality standards: There is often pressure to produce content that meets high standards of quality and effectiveness, which can be difficult to achieve.

Content creation may be a challenging process, but it is also a rewarding one that can help businesses to connect with their audience and achieve their goals.

PHYSICAL OFFICE & ADDRESS

Service Definition

A physical office is a must for those who are seeking to use their business as part of an E1/E2/L1 visa strategy. For simple business practices only a Physical Address Service is enough.

  • Physical Address Service (Enterprise Level): $69.99/mnth (See details in Physical NYC Address Services)
  • Shared Desk Service: $600/mnth (Includes Enterprise Physical Address Services) A shared desk that you can work from when you are in New York.
  • Physical office presence: Recommended office configuration for businesses that are considering future visa strategies:
    • $2,400 /mnth (3 – 4 desks, corporate signage on the door, computers, and monitor) Minimum configuration for meeting “business presence” requirements.
    • $50/mnth per phone number VOIP with a local phone number (includes Softphone / phone app so that you can make / receive phone calls on your computer or your phone). Service supports SMS and Fax numbers as well as a 1-800 number for the business with a VM box.

For larger businesses or those who require, we can help negotiate a commercial lease on a higher-end office, or a dedicated floor in a suitable location in and around New York. We also provide services for commercial retail location application and leases. This is a steep investment for businesses that have no prior engagement history in the US, and we advise against this kind of move at least for the first two years.

All options above include unlimited physical mail delivery, scanning of important documents and online storage and access to retrieve scanned documents, meeting room access (pending pre-scheduling), kitchen, Internet access (wireless) and printer services.

Physical Address Service and Shared Desk Service DOES NOT include storing of packages, short term or not regardless of package size. For short term package receiving and storage services please see Virtual NYC Address Services

For businesses that are going to engage in commercial activities especially in e-commerce a fulfillment and return merchandise management is strongly recommended. See Return Address Services for details.

PHYSICAL NYC ADDRESS SERVICE

Service Definition

Physical NYC Address service is most suitable for companies that want to operate from NYC without having to rent an office or desk space. It’s not meant to be a replacement for a physical presence and is not suitable for package storage of any sort.

Official letters of correspondence will be scanned and made available via an online portal for the client. To prevent abuse, these types of services are always limited to 1 or 2 recipients. A recipient is defined as one company name + one person name. Additional names would be counted as different recipients and would be charged to your Credit Card on file, which is another requirement of these types of services as accrued additional fees need to be charged at the end of every month to prevent disruptions of service.

RETURN ADDRESS SERVICE

Service Definition

Return Address service is most suitable for online merchants who don’t have a return address in the US. It is NOT a forwarding service, and it is not feasible for medium to long term storage either. It is only economical as a short term storage for returned merchandise from customers (think Amazon returns) to accumulate and then handled as per your (seller’s/manufacturer’s) directions.

Most common utilization is using the service as a return shipping address in an e-commerce marketplace and then every week batching the returns up and either sending them off to your long-term storage facility or shipping them back to you; sometimes merchants rather have the products disposed of / donated as tax write-off because it is more feasible. This service fills the needs of out of country sellers who ship products directly to their customers as well.
