Stay Compliant

Unlike many firms, we don't disappear after setting up your business. We help you learn how to run a compliant general partnership.

Getting an EIN is Required

Obtaining a Federal Tax ID (EIN) for your partnership is required by the IRS. You may not use an owner SSN en lieu of obtaining an EIN.


We will need your SSN or TIN to apply for your EIN. We take the security of your sensitive information seriously. Your filing specialist is a screened U.S. citizen working in our U.S. headquarters.

No Liability Protection

When you decide to form your business as a general proprietorship, the owners do not have limited liability protection. Business debts and lawsuits can seize your home, car, savings, and other personal assets.
