Why to open a bank account in the US?

A Delaware registered company is not obliged to maintain its bank accounts in the State of Delaware or the USA. In fact the company can open bank accounts anywhere worldwide. However, international clients who form a Delaware company with the intention to do business in the United States will at some stage require a local company bank account in the United States.

US bank account opening - it was that simple

The general procedure to open a corporate bank account in the United States remained unchanged since the 60's: US banks ask for proof confirming that the company exists and that it is in good standing.

Immediately after 9/11 the "Partiots Act" - introduced to allow better control of who runs a bank account in the US - made it almost impossible for non-US residents to open corporate bank accounts without showing up in person at the bank - a truly very inflexible regulation.
