Here's 2(ish) very practical questions on doing business in the US from Michael at Datagrid: First question: When we invoice our Irish and UK clients they pay by Direct Debit. Is there an equivalent process in the US to allow us and the client to automate the process as much as possible and make the payment process as smooth as possible?
If there is, does it only work if we have a US domiciled account? What do US companies use if not a DD system? We want to make it easy for the client to pay us, and for us to collect the monthly income. Second Question: In order to invoice and collect / receive payments from a US client, do we need to be registered in the US or use a US company? I assume not, but have been told otherwise.
