An employer identification number (EIN), also known as a federal tax identification number, is used to identify a business. It is like a social security number for your business.
EINs allow companies to report their taxes and make payments. Most banks require an EIN to open a business bank account.
ZenBusiness can help you secure an EIN for your business. ZenBusiness includes an EIN in our Pro and Premium plans, and you can also purchase it as a stand alone item from your dashboard.
