SS4 is the IRS form required to obtain an EIN (Employer Identification Number). An EIN/Tax ID number can be considered a Social Security Number for your business. It is a necessary document for opening a bank account in the name of your business and registering in payment systems. We obtain an EIN for you by applying to the official US government agencies.
What is an EIN?
EIN – Employer Identification Number. An EIN, also known as a “Tax ID number,” is a business federal tax ID that works like a Social Security Number for your business. Your EIN helps you file tax returns for your business, open a business bank account under your business name, set up an account with payment systems and thus enter the world market, and most importantly, maintain your business’s official position as a legal business entity.
Do you need an EIN?
If you intend to market your product or service to the global market, you need to get an EIN. The EIN is not used to sell products or services on the worldwide market alone. Many digital platforms are within your reach. After forming a Delaware corporation or LLC, the next step is to obtain a Federal Tax Identification Number (also known as an employer identification number or EIN). Just as having a social security number is essential for US citizens, a Federal Tax Identification Number is necessary for an LLC or company to do business legally, especially if you are running a business in the US. All US companies require an EIN to open a US bank account, get a loan, hire employees, and more. The EIN is valid for the life of the company. However, a new Federal Tax Identification Number is required if your business changes entity type (for example, from an LLC to a corporation).
