Dear Kevin,

Thanks for reaching out on the Open to Export forum. As mentioned above, it is best to speak with an attorney and/or tax specialist in regards to setting up a company and the tax implications involved. Check out the website, which may be able to signpost you to some general information.

Kind Regards,
