I've been in Canada since june 2014 and I have very little time left here. (Not enough points for Canadian PR) and now I want to set up an online store in Canada as I'm finding it extremely difficult to register this in the US.

I have a working SIN number/drivers license etc.

I will NOT be operating in the Canadian market. I just want to register the online only business here (Im in Alberta)

ALL my customers and ALL the suppliers of my products are in the USA. US based suppliers generally don't mind if your company is registered in Canada as long as it's not in say Egypt for example. Therefore the income I will earn will be in CAD and I will be paying taxes in Canada. No goods will be shipped across to Canada what so ever/maybe in the future that will change but for right now I solely want to do business in the US.

What options do I have here. What work arounds have people used? I seriously hope somebody has an answer. Thank you

One Non resident of USA can register Business in USA and fo rthat you have to hire a third party (service Provider) to get register for you and the cost would be around USD 2000 for non resident to get registration and EIN (Employer Identification Number)
