I want to start a business in the U.S. How should I go about obtaining an EIN and an ITIN?
If you are a non-U.S. person and would like to start a business in the U.S., you will need an individual tax number (ITIN) and also a tax identification number for your new company (EIN).
To acquire an ITIN you’ll need to file Form W-7 and to acquire an EIN you’ll need to file Form SS-4. In order to start a business in the U.S., you will also need to appoint a U.S.-based company agent who can receive correspondence from the IRS. We will need the name and address of this agent in order to file for you.
