Dear Seniors and all H1B holders,
First let me introduce myself, I am NEW BEE of this forum, I never heard about this forum, I am on H1B since last 1year some months, I moved from UK (UK on student visa). I got job from UK based consulting company here in VAIL Colorado on H1b. I have government project client group of Police department, DMV - RMV department, I am responsible consultant for soft.developement, email servers and IIS server systems even manage team of 10 people. now my consulting company told me to move with other employer because they are closing branch of UK - USA based, they give me 6months notice.
my friend told me that open your own consulting company and hired yourself, make contract as consultant with above Police - DMV - RMV office (even my director of IT is ready to give me contract if I open company). but my question is H1B holder can open own firm (consulting) and work for own consulting company? if its true then please suggest me the best way to open firm or registration of firm or company just for me (1person).
I would like to receive valuable information.
