What is an EIN?
EIN stands for employer identification number and is also known as FEID (Federal Employer Identification Number). This identifier is a nine-digit number used by the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) to identify businesses operating in the United States. Many new company owners are unsure if obtaining an employer identification number is required for their business. We believe having an EIN is essential to keeping your social security number from falling into the wrong hands. See below and let us you decide if one is needed.
If ANY of the following applies to your company, an EIN is required:
Company has employees.
Company operates as a partnership, corporation, limited liability company, sole proprietor, etc…
Pay is withheld for a non-resident alien for anything other than wages.
Company has a Keogh plan (tax deferred pension plan for retirement purposes).
This unique number cannot be re-assigned to any other business once issued. If a business ceases operation, the number may be retired only.
