If I create an LLC out of state for an online business, do I qualify as a foreign entity?
Question Details: I will be starting a business on Amazon FBA and creating my LLC in another state. I will live in MT but I will not have a physical store, I will have no employees, and all my product will be shipped from my supplier directly to Amazon. From what I have read online, that would not qualify as "doing business" in MT but I am trying to cover my bases.
You are correct. If you do not do any commerce in MT--no store, no production facilities, no employees, no warehousing or fulfillment center, etc.--you are not doing business in MT for purposes of having to register as a foreign corporation.
