An EIN number (Employer Identification Number, also known as a Tax ID number) can be thought of as a Social Security Number for your business. It is required to open a bank account in the name of the business and to properly pay for any employees or contractors of your company. An EIN is also required to apply for a credit card in the name of your business.

A Federal EIN is required by the IRS for Your Business Entity

Your EIN is necessary for several situations while running your business. Unless your business is a sole proprietorship with no employees and no separate legal entity for your business, you need to get an EIN. Even the simplest businesses can generally benefit from using an EIN – the EIN serves as a tax ID for your LLC or other corporate entity. The following business entities should get an EIN:

  • Partnerships:An EIN is required for all general partnerships and limited partnerships
  • Multiple-member LLCs:This type of business entity needs an EIN regardless of whether you have employees.
  • Single-member LLCs:If you plan to hire employees within the next 12 months, you will need to get an EIN. And even if your single-member LLC has no employees, and even if you can get by with using your own individual Social Security Number for tax purposes, it’s still a good idea to get an EIN because many banks and lenders will prefer to use an EIN to do business with you.
  • LLC taxed as a Corporation:: If your LLC chooses to be taxed as a Corporation (for example, by electing to be treated as an S-Corporation for tax purposes), you will need to get an EIN.
  • Sole proprietorship with employees:Even if you do not have an LLC or any other legal entity for your business and you run a simple sole proprietorship, you still need to get an EIN if you have employees or plan to hire employees in the next 12 months.

When You’ll Use an EIN

In most cases, you’ll need an EIN number immediately, as soon as you start your business.
You will need to use your EIN for certain tax forms, such as filing your tax returns for your business, and filling out W9 forms for customers and clients, and other forms related to managing payroll for your employees. Your EIN is also necessary to set up a business bank account and apply for business loans.
