An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a special nine-digit number the IRS gives to businesses. With it, you can hire employees, open bank accounts, and ensure your business is tax-ready.
Aside from some sole proprietorships, almost every business requires an EIN just to function. Your business needs an EIN to:
Open a business bank account
File your taxes
Pay independent contractors
Even for sole proprietorships, using an EIN can also help keep your SSN secure.
You'll usually only need a new EIN if your business structure or management changes. For other changes, like a new business name, you might have other paperwork, but your EIN stays the same.
There is no set deadline to get an EIN. However, it's best to have one before you seek business loans, hire employees, or handle taxes.
No, once you obtain your specific EIN, you can keep it forever.
