Why Delaware...

The State of Delaware hosts over one million companies. These companies are both controlled by residents and non-residents where over half of the publicly traded US corporations are incorporated and domiciled in Delaware. Non-residents are distinguished between US citizens and foreigners. Tax incentives in Delaware include an exemption from business tax for non-residents and activities outside the State. The Delaware General Corporation Law is part of the Delaware Code and governs businesses and their activities. Due to the size and nature of the corporate jurisdiction, the Delaware courts can draw from substantial and well developed case law, offering enhanced corporate legal certainty.
