My company wants me to register a business in USA for them . They want to put me under CFO, CEO but I think that is very risky for me . Can I put myself as registered agent , incorporator or statutory agent ? I don't want any lawsuit get on me if there are any problems .
Yes, you certainly are not required to list yourself as an officer. However, you will be required to list the officers (CEO, treasurer and secretary) if you are incorporating (no such officer listing is required for an LLC).
Yes, you can assume the role of a registered agent , incorporator or statutory agent, but you should realize that will not grant you any authority to act after the company is organized and may not satisfy your company's desires. Yu should consult with an experienced Business Attorney to organize the entity and insulate yourself from personal liability.
The foregoing discussion does not establish an attorney-client relationship, is qualified by the limited facts presented above, and should not be relied upon as legal advice. To obtain definitive legal advice upon which one can rely necessitates retaining an attorney who is qualified in this particular area of the law.
You should really discuss this with a good business attorney. There are ways to limit your liability, but if you already feel that something might go wrong, this certainly isn't the sort of thing to undertake without legal advice. Some of my clients' overseas partners or bosses are reluctant to pay for a US attorney's help when the system in their own country is so different and, for example, an accountant may customarily set up a company for them... but you are the one in the hot seat hear if there is a problem. Stand your ground and hire an attorney.
