Where is it actually BETTER to create a business, as an American living abroad? In terms of taxes, future investment, etc.
For example, I'm about to obtain permanent residency in Germany, meaning I can stay in the country regardless of employment status. After I receive the visa, I have the opportunity to create a business in either the United States or here in Germany. Or, I can create an American business and a German branch? Or the other way around? Who knows!
The tricky thing is there are not that many tax advisors who are experts on two tax systems. Luckily we have a handful in Berlin, but being completely "correct" seems near impossible as a lot is left to interpretation.
For American founders abroad: where did you establish your business and why? Was it the right choice?
