You get access to a filing specialist whose full-time job is helping businesses like yours get started and stay compliant.
Your dedicated specialist handles your formation from start to finish and you can contact him or her directly anytime.
Unlike many firms, we don't disappear after setting up your business. We help you learn how to run a compliant sole proprietorship.
Obtaining a Federal Tax ID (EIN) for your sole proprietorship is optional; you may use your personal SSN instead. Protect your identity by getting and using an EIN instead of an SSN for business purposes.
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.
When you decide to form your business as a sole proprietorship, you and your business are the same legal entity. There is no limited liability protection of your home, car, savings, and other personal assets.
