Can a non-us person be a member of an LLC?
– David, Florida
Yes. Unlike S-corporations, LLCs can have non-US citizens as members. If you wish to have your LLC taxed as an S-corporation, then obviously, no non-US members are allowed (and the LLC must follow the other S-corporation requirements as well).
In fact, pretty much any entity can be a member of an LLC, including:
- A US citizen.
- Non-US citizen.
- An LLC.
- A corporation.
- A trust.
- A partnership.

I have formed a LLC company and I need to include a member’s name. Can this member a foreign limited company? –By Bernard, Columbia, Mo, USA)
Foreign LLCs can be members of another LLC. Unlike, for example, S-corporations, there are no restrictions on the type of entity the member of an LLC can be.
Any of the following can be a member of an LLC: individuals (both US citizen and non-US citizens), trusts, corporations, LLCs, partnerships, limited partnerships.
