U.S. Board Member / Director Service for Your U.S. Corporation

Provision of a U.S. Board Member for Your U.S. Corporation

Our U.S. contract officer service and why it’s crucial for the smooth operation of your US business

For all of our clients who have our C-Corporation package, we provide a U.S board member for your business. This is really important when setting up in the U.S because without a U.S board member you cannot get a U.S bank account. It also helps you have someone who appears everywhere on public record as a name behind your company. This member service is really helpful and extremely useful when setting up your corporation in the U.S.

Introducing our U.S. Director service and why it’s crucial for the smooth operation of your US business

Mount Bonnell will provide a U.S. director for your corporation. That person will be a U.S. based employee of our law firm. They are usually called the “President of the Corporation”, but another title may be chosen.

In regards to your company, it is important to have a U.S. director for two reasons:

  • The director’s details will be published in the Register of Companies in the state where your company resides. This means that no other members of the executive board need to be reported in that Register (the law stipulates only one person per company). The shareholders do not need to be entered in the Register.
  • The U.S. director will be one of the signatories for the company’s U.S. bank account. Therefore, the U.S. director can save you from making a trip to the United States by completing the bank account opening for you. Although later you must visit the U.S. relevant bank to ensure that you are added to the account as a signatory.

If you wish, you too can become a director of your U.S. company. Alternatively, you will receive the power of attorney and the general power of attorney issued by the director.

Account Authorization

Once the US company director is appointed by Mount Bonnell that individual opens an account for the company.  The director, initially at least, becomes the sole signatory of that account. However, we will give you the online banking details, as well as the debit card, as soon as this is practical. But technically, it is the appointed director who becomes the authorized signatory.

Nevertheless, we recommend that you come to the U.S. within the 6 months after the establishment of your U.S. company. Then you will come with us to the company’s bank and sign as the authorized signatory. However, even after that, your U.S. director is still authorized to sign for the company’s bank accounts. This is a banking requirement.

We understand if you feel unsure about this aspect. Unfortunately, it is out of our hands. However, we will provide further information about this to help offset any doubts you may have.

No Involvement in the Daily Running of the Business

The appointed director will not be involved in the day-to-day running of your U.S. business. Their responsibilities as such are limited to administrative tasks.

In addition, the US director should not be represented as a manager in your marketing material or on the company website. The director will not sign any contracts on your behalf. If they choose to receive the power of attorney, however, they will then be able to sign all contracts for the company.
