U.S. Customs Regulations: Insight into the First Sale Rule
Depending on your position in the worksite ecosystem you may be required to take a training course before being able to start your activity.
Depending on the type of activity and the state in which the activity takes place, one or more different types of insurance are necessary.
If you haven’t respected the work safety regulations that apply to that particular worksite, then you could be punishable by law in the US.
In theory, yes. However it’s necessary to understand the limits imposed by the union in the case of union jobs and what the immigration requirements are. Regardless, ExportUSA helps you to find a solution.
Not automatically. The very specific conditions dictated by the union must be respected.
In general, yes. It’s necessary to know which union and which local branch.
This is a key question of many projects. We help you to find the answer and enroll in the union if necessary.
In this case as well, we help you to find the answer and request the necessary licenses.
We prepare of all of the contracts necessary for your company’s activities.
We open all of the insurance policies necessary for your company’s activities.
We request the licenses that are necessary at the federal and/or state levels.
We handle union enrollment if, during market entry planning, we discover that it’s necessary to become a member of one or more unions.
We decide together with you what actions to take in order to enter the American market.
Many variables affect the strategy for entering a sector as complex and regulated as that of construction. A complete overview of the project is needed.
It’s very difficult for a product as it is to be successful in multiple markets: consumption models, purchasing habits, culture, and values all differ. You must adapt to the specific American target.
The graphic aspect and the packaging are part of branding, but branding in and of itself is a much broader activity. If we were to identify a single element that defines branding, it would be the choice of positioning.
ExportUSA has the experience and ability to handle all of the stages of the project that lead to the definition and implementation of a branding strategy.
This is the stage in which all of the elements that make up the branding are defined: image, communication, copy, packaging, price, channel, and advertising and promotional activities.
This is the key moment of the entire branding project, that in which the best positioning is chosen in view of the company’s competitive abilities and the specific market ecosystem. This is when the promise and the target are chosen.
This is the phase in which the specific competitive scenario is outlined: prices, channels, segments, and specific competitors.
This is the most important step for understanding how to structure a future branding strategy for the American market. The characteristics of the product and the company must be defined.
SIMEST covers the costs and expenses of the project for up to 24 months after it has been approved, but costs are eligible starting from the presentation of the application.
Approval of the project takes between two and four months and SIMEST dispenses 50% of the total loan amount at the time of approval.
From market analysis to the opening of retail structures, from TEM [temporary export manager] services to consulting activities.
The funds are dispensed directly by SIMEST, they do not pass through banking channels and therefore do not enter a credit bureau.
ExportUSA assists the company in its relationship with SIMEST during the development of the project, all the way to final accounting stage.
ExportUSA supports and assists the company during the application approval process.
Once the project is complete, the formal application is submitted to SIMEST.
This document will be the foundation of the SIMEST loan application.
Once the amount that can be financed has been determined, it’s necessary to outline which activities are to be carried out in the American market.
The company’s finances are classified according to the parameters dictated by SIMEST. This is the first step in determining the maximum amount that SIMEST will finance.
It’s not easy to convince importers or distributors to make time to evaluate new products from a foreign company that the market has never heard of. When you manage to, it’s essential to present them with a professional summary of your product’s position, something which only market research can generate.
Trade shows are an excellent tool for doing business in the United States. Presenting oneself before buyers without knowing who one’s competitors are, if one’s prices are competitive, and where to insert them demonstrates a lack of professionalism and could result in losing an opportunity to sell.
Market research not only lets the company know if the product is salable in the United States, but also how much to sell it for, how to sell it, and who to sell it to. This is fundamental information for calibrating one’s investments in product, communication, and promotion.
We get in touch with the market representatives among our contacts, like importers, distributers, agents, showrooms, members of industry associations, etc., in order to verify the selling potential of the company’s specific product, perhaps providing a sample.
We put together a map of the stages of commercial development that describes how to go about entering the American market and achieve the identified sales and profit objectives.
We identify direct American and international competitors that are already present in the market. We analyze their price points, the sales channels that they use, and their communication style in order to suggest differentiation strategies and ideas for claiming space.
We advise the company on how to regularize its products in order to legally sell them in the United States.
We segment the target customers according to geo-demographic variables, purchasing habits, and drivers of demand. We advise the company on how to align with the values and the information / purchasing channels of its American customers.
We verify the company’s value, volume, and aggregate and per-category growth rates. We identify the primary and innovative B2B and B2C sales channels. We identify sources of opportunity or threat specific to the American market.
We analyze the products, identifying customs codes and the impact of duties on exports to the American market. We calculate the impact of logistics in various shipping scenarios and create an export catalogue with Incoterm, which the client expects to use for purchase.
Prior to conducting market research, in-depth meetings are held between ExportUSA and the company in order to understand the brand’s positioning within its domestic market, the sales strategy used up to that point, and the objectives for the American market.
The sales manager is often the first figure that a company hires to increase and manage sales in the US. We’ve helped many companies rapidly and efficiently find excellent sales people with specific experience in the sector.
The American employment market is very dynamic. Employees can find better opportunities and change jobs frequently, which is why it’s very important to create a compensation package and incentives that motivate them to remain and that align with the company’s objectives.
Employment in America is usually “at will”, and an employee can be fired with or without cause.
An American company can hire an Italian employee only after having sponsored his or her work visa, including H1B, E1, E2, L1, O1, and J1.
The cost of work in the US is much lower than it is in Italy. However employees expect a compensation package that goes beyond their salary and may include benefits such as health insurance and a pension plan.
We open the company’s contributory role and manage the issue of employee paychecks, ensuring that the company is in compliance with American administrative and fiscal obligations.
We write up the employment contract in accordance with the laws of the state in which the employee being hired resides.
We analytically and qualitatively evaluate the requested compensation package, calculating the job’s cost for the company.
We conduct a first and second round of interviews in order to select the candidates.
We publish the job posting on the primary job search websites, using advanced candidate profiling tools.
We introduce the top candidates to the head of the company and assist him or her during interviews [in which we are also present] in order to ensure that the terms of the job are clear.
We analyze job postings for comparable positions and create a job description in line with the standards of responsibility, experience, and compensation package.
Prior to recruitment, in-depth meetings are conducted between ExportUSA and the company in order to define the role, skills, and experience of the American employee to be hired.
The bookkeeping of an American company requires knowledge and a command of the principles of accounting and taxation in the US. Entrusting this task to highly qualified professionals allows the company to focus on its core business activities and to sleep soundly knowing that its bookkeeping and US taxes are in order.
Yes, Quickbooks manages the warehouse and monitors the stock and movement of products. When possible, it’s integrated with the logistics platforms in order to program automatic flows and manage the entire sales cycle with a single software.
Yes, six months.
We will use Quickbooks, the most widely used accounting management software in the US, which is intuitive and easy-to-use. We will take care of setting up the system and will train you in how to use it.
Depending on the needs of the client, the bookkeeping will be updated weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Our objective is to punctually and regularly provide clients with an updated view of their company’s economic and financial situation.
ExportUSA’s personnel speak Italian and provide continuous assistance, aimed not only at keeping the bookkeeping up-to-date and organized, but above all at providing clear and comprehensible support when it comes to accounting and the American taxation system.
ExportUSA will handle all of the accounting records except for the issuing of active invoices which will be the responsibility of the client. We will use a shared database to share documents (supplier invoices, receipts, sales slips, etc.).
Of course. Quickbooks Online is cloud-based, which means that it can be accessed from anywhere and at anytime. We will provide each user with personal login credentials for the software.
The final thing to do is purchase the licenses for the bookkeeping software and begin operations.
This activity is preliminary to the start of bookkeeping.
All of the operative procedures are coordinated with the client company’s internal accounting department .
The first step is to fully understand the business of the client company.
This depends on the product, but it takes at least six months.
In theory yes, but in practice, before accepting the task, we conduct a rapid preliminary analysis to verify the realistic likelihood of success.
No, that will be the job of the distributor or of your American branch.
Yes. This service is included among those that can be financed by SIMEST with the incentive of a percentage in the form of a grant as well.
The distributor can take care of logistics, or, as an alternative you may choose to rely on an external logistics center. ExportUSA also offers this service through its own logistics center in Dayton, Ohio.
A long-distance course is conducted in order to prepare you to handle e-mails and presentations in American business English. Aside from the English language itself, aspects of American business etiquette are also covered.
The search begins and after the first three to four contacts are made a report of the initial results is prepared, according to which the sales pitch is adjusted.
A sales pitch is prepared, to be used when presenting the company and its product.
ExportUSA reviews all communications materials, from brochures to the website, in order to ensure that the translation and language are correct.
Before beginning the actual search, a rapid market analysis is conducted in order to get a sense of the project’s feasibility.
Prior to the search, in-depth meetings are held between ExportUSA and the producing company in order to understand the uses and functions of the product.
No. Only the company must register. Products don’t get registered, but they must comply with standards.
No. Registration with the FDA is not mandatory for companies that produce cosmetics.
Registration usually takes between two and three working days.
No. American regulations are completely different.
No. The registration must be renewed every two years [by 12/31 of even-numbered years].
No. The FDA does not certify any products, nor issue permits or authorizations.
It’s the number issued by the FDA following the company’s registration.
For cosmetics, this is the most critical step in ensuring a product’s compliance: it’s necessary in order to avoid the product being classified as a medication rather than a cosmetic.
For medical devices this is the first step in ensuring compliance: understanding how the product is classified according to the classification rules dictated by the FDA.
This is the final step in determining a product’s admissibility in the US market.
This is the second step in determining if there are any inadmissible ingredients.
The production process also affects the compliance procedure.
This is the first step in determining the best way to ensure your products’ compliance.
Yes. Every year ExportUSA does an inventory of the merchandise in the warehouse. However, you can always conduct an independent inventory at any time.
Yes. Our warehouse is equipped to store food products as long as they don’t require a controlled temperature.
No. Our warehouse is only at ambient temperature.
No. You can terminate the contract at any time with a month’s notice.
We receive the orders that need to be fulfilled, prepare them, and ship them to the indicated recipients.
We receive the merchandise that’s shipped to us and store it in the warehouse.
No. The backup letter is a procedure for entry to the United States used by those who must travel to the US for temporary employment purposes.
No. The two are mutually exclusive, even though having a company is an essential requirement for obtaining an E2, E1, or L1 visa.
There is no minimum number of import operations required. It’s necessary to complete frequent and continuous import operations of non-trivial value.
The law doesn’t specify a precise sum that must be invested, only that the investment must be proportional to the activity.
Yes. The E2 visa [as well as the E1 visa] extends to spouses and underage children. It should be noted that spouses can also work and don’t necessarily have to work in the same company in which the holder of the visa works.
No. The B1 visa isn’t a work visa and is only acceptable for conducting preparatory sales activities or technical activities.
All visas have a duration. All visas expire. They need to be renewed. ExportUSA offers a visa renewal service for all types of United States visas.
After submitting the visa application we remain in contact with the legal office and with the American consular authorities to keep track of its progress.
All visa applications include an in-person interview at the embassy or consulate. Interview preparation serves to alleviate the inevitable tension that arises in anticipation of this important event.
Based on the documents that we’ve collected we prepare the application and send it to the relevant consular authorities [American Embassy or American Consulate].
In order for the visa application to be accepted it’s vital to provide all of the correct and necessary documents. ExportUSA never sends a visa application to the embassy if it lacks any of the necessary documents.
No, it isn’t necessary for one of your partners to be an American citizen. All partners can be Italian citizens [and they don’t need any type of visa].
No, you don’t need to have American officers. All of the officers can be foreign citizens.
If you don’t have your own address, you can domicile your American company at our New York offices. Domiciliation is another service that we offer together with the opening of the company.
There is no mandatory minimum share capital required to open a company in the US.
No, you don’t need any kind of visa to open a company in the US.
Opening an American company usually takes between 3 and 4 weeks, including the time necessary for requesting a tax identification number. The timeframe varies depending on the state in which you decide to open the company.
Yes, ownership of your American company can be divided between individuals and companies in whatever percentage you wish or can be owned entirely by a foreign company.
Yes, there’s no need to rent an office because we can domicile your company at our New York offices.
The domiciliation service that ExportUSA offers, also makes an online application available to clients which simplifies accounting and financial reporting.
ExportUSA also offers consulting services in which we provide a detailed explanation of your American company’s duties and a list of the various tax deadlines throughout the year.
We carry out the first formal administrative activities in order to initiate corporate operations in the US. Included in these activities is also the appointment of administrators and the issue of share certificates.
Once we have obtained your EIN, we proceed with opening your American company’s bank account. The account is opened with an American bank and allows all transactions: from payment of utilities and suppliers to the execution of wire transfers.
As soon as the company is legitimately incorporated, we ask the US tax authorities for your company’s Employer Identification Number (EIN).
Logistics in America in the post-Covid era and imports to China

The challenges facing small and medium sized businesses are currently more daunting than ever. A strategy of adaptability and innovation is essential for successfully navigating today’s COVID-ravaged global economy
Planning is essential for properly framing the request for any type of visa. The first step is, therefore, to perform a detailed analysis of all of the aspects of your visa request.
ExportUSA offers domiciliation of companies in the United States. All tax, customs, bank, and client correspondence arrives at ExportUSA’s offices in New York and your company will have an address and phone number in the US.
In a recent study, 43% of SMBs said that digital payments are more important to their business now than before the COVID-19 pandemic. As SMBs begin to recover, 38% report an increase in sales since the beginning of the pandemic, and fewer SMBs are experiencing a decrease in sales (38% in 2021 vs. 47% in 2020).
Rules need to be written on a range of sensitive technology issues. Many in the West believe that China’s technological superiority represents a strategic threat to the world order.
Historically, services have been hard to export, since having local skilled personnel to troubleshoot was deemed essential to remaining competitive. However, COVID-19 rewrote the rulebook, and companies are increasingly using AI-driven technology to put service providers in touch with end-users.
Finding an importer in the US is getting harder. This is because in the years since the financial crisis of 2008, the importer has practically disappeared and been replaced by the distributor. Or, put another way, importers now act like distributors. Still, the need for an importer in the US is a tough-to-kill myth.
Many products imported into the United States of America require the payment of tariffs. Most goods are imported with no tariff, but there are significant differences that vary according to the type of merchandise.

Many believe the chief characteristic of US-China relations is competition, but the truth is that the two superpowers sit heavily in each other’s laps. There’s a disconnect between the official party line and how much business gets done by ex-pats on both sides.
US-China trade is booming, despite tariffs and the ongoing posturing on each side. It’s been 18 months since Trump signed the latest agreement, which is looking more and more like a truce. There’s no intention of resuming talks on either side, the focus is on competition, not communication.
