What if my business fails in the USA?

Expanding to the US benefits many foreign companies. But if your plans change, Foothold America will help you easily shut down US operations. So, do not worry if your business fails in the USA.

The US offers foreign businesses a wealth of opportunities for growth and expansion. Foothold America allows you to test the US market without investing the time and expense to form and manage a complex legal entity in the US.

However, if your business in the US does not meet your goals or you feel that it is ‘failing’, you can decide to shut down US operations. We realise that priorities can quickly change in business, so here at Foothold America, we only ask for two week’s notice to end our working relationship.

Your US worker will be an at-will employee and therefore will not have an employment contract. So, you are able to terminate the employee without being bound by a contract. We can advise you further in this regard too.
