Director of a company based in Seychelles
I am currently living in the states and I pay tax here and I'm resident here however I am planning on becoming a director of a company and running the company for an overseas family members.
The company will not operate in the USA at all and I will not own the company.
The family members overseas will be the shareholders and owners of the company.
I am trying to find out if me being the director and running the company would make the company tax resident in the USA and corporation tax on profits be required to be paid in the USA? Or would me being the director only make me responsible for pay taken as a salary?
I can't seem to find a definite answer anywhere and I'd appreciate it if someone here could point me in the right direction to find out. A lot of accountants I've seen aren't unable to say for sure.
