What is an EIN Number? How Do I Get One?

You may be looking for a job or you may want to set up a new business in the United States. As the United States has one of the biggest economies of the world, forming a company in the U.S. might be a great choice. As a non-resident or non-citizen of the U.S., the process would be really confusing and complicated for you.

Most people do not know where to start and frequently consult us about forming a new company in the United States. We can say that the first important thing when you get your certificate of formation is the Employer Identification Number which is abbreviated as EIN. Having an EIN number is the first rule if you would like to set up a company in most people’s dream country.

What is an EIN Number?

EIN is an abbreviation stands for Employer Identification Number. It is also known as the Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN). EIN is a unique, nine-digit number that is issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in order to assign to the businesses operating in the United States for the purpose of identification and taxes.

EIN is a number like a Social Security Number (SSN) for a person, but instead for a business. If you run a corporation, for example, a limited liability company with more than one member or a business that hires employees, you are most likely required to obtain an EIN. It is the number that normally businesses first apply for following incorporation. To sum up, it is very important to have it on your to-do list.

How do I Get One?

You may be a registered Amazon seller and receive payments from the United States or you may need EIN to register to payment platforms such as PayPal or Stripe. You may also be a non-resident U.S. business owner that you will need a U.S. tax ID number. In all these situations, EIN will be necessary for various kinds of commercial activities. Delawarefile.com can handle the process of applying for an EIN on your company’s behalf. The service can be added to your company formation order or exists as a standalone.
