Employer Identification Number

After starting your business, obtain your EIN (also known as a Tax ID). The EIN is required for LLCs and corporations to pay taxes. The IRS also uses this to identify your business and communicate with you. An EIN helps you register a business entity, obtain a business loan, open a business bank account, and carry out other business-related activities.
When an EIN is Required
  • Checkmark Any business entity with employees
  • Checkmark Multi-member LLCs
  • Checkmark Corporations and any entity taxed as a corporation.
  • Checkmark If you buy a business or inherit a business
  • Checkmark If you file for bankruptcy
Open a Bank Account

Your business will need its own bank account in order to keep its finances secure and separate from its owners. An EIN is required to open a business bank account with most banks.

Build Your Credit Profile

Your EIN will allow your business to build its own separate credit profile. This will help your business obtain loans, rent offices, and lease equipment, especially when the owners have poor credit.

Hire Employees

All businesses that hire employees are required by law to have an EIN.

File Taxes

A business needs an EIN in order to file taxes with the IRS separately from its owners.
