Additionally, a Delaware Division of Revenue Business License is required.

Prior to filing in Delaware, the non-US entity must authorize the domestication and certificate of incorporation or formation in the manner prescribed by its governing documents or the legislation of the country in which it was formed. The entity is considered to be the same entity as the domesticating non-US entity upon domestication in Delaware, and the domestication is deemed to represent a continuation of the domesticating non-US entity’s existence in the form of a Delaware corporation or LLC. Delaware law applies to the non-US entity to the same degree as if the non-US entity had been established as a Delaware entity on the effective date of domestication. However, domestication of a non-US business does not alter any obligations or liabilities accrued before domestication, nor does it impact any person’s personal responsibility for such obligations/liabilities.

A foreign firm may also do business via an intermediary, such as a sales agent, distributor, or branch office. However, these arrangements may expose the foreign company to significantly increased risk and responsibility in the United States.
