Delaware is the corporate capital of the U.S.

Delaware’s incorporation process is not only efficient, it is also cost-effective. The cost of doing business in Delaware is 9.3 percent below the national average, according to Forbes magazine. Delaware does not charge sales or inventory taxes, and offers many tax credit opportunities. The State is ranked first in Foreign Direct Investment in the U.S. by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation due to the high percentage of the workforce that is employed by foreign companies.

Delaware is conveniently located in the heart of the Mid-Atlantic, a short distance from Philadelphia, New York and Washington, D.C., with 40 percent of the U.S. population within a day’s drive.
