If you’re thinking of expanding into the US, you’ll need US workers on the ground. This will enable them to run the US arm of your business, pursue leads and talk to your customers. However, in order to this, you’ll need to:
- set up a subsidiary company so that you can hire employees
- obtain a Federal Tax ID Number

Alternatively, you could skip this completely and use our services here at Foothold America. We can find, hire and manage the right US workers for you, so you can explore the US market without all the expense and delay other businesses experience.
