    what is the right way to transfer the money into the business’s account:
    Should I transfer from Israel directly to the company’s account? or go through my private account in US?
    Should I state reason of transfer as “investment”? because stating that will make me pay 25% taxes to Israel, and that’s doesn’t make sense.

    You wrote “A business bank account is an account that is the name of the business entity that has been registered with a State Department.”

    How can you do that first if you dont have a visa or anything? Can I come to US, go to state department and register my business? Is it easy to do and doesnt require any US documents?
