Can I Look Up The EIN For A Business?

Yes, you can. If the business is private, you can use an EIN lookup service such as FEINsearch.com.

All publicly-traded companies’ EINs are available in the SEC’s database EDGAR. You can find your company’s Employer Identification Number on your W2-form.

What Is An EIN?

An EIN is similar to social security numbers, but for a business entity rather than for an individual. It is a nine-digit number assigned to businesses by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Some businesses, like sole proprietorships and single-member LLCs, can use their social security numbers (SSNs) instead of EINs.

When Do I Need An EIN?

Your business needs an EIN to hire employees, offer a retirement plan, file excise tax returns, partner with other businesses, open a company bank account, and perform a litany of other essential tasks.

Unless your business is a sole proprietorship or single-member LLC, you’re going to want an EIN. Even tax-exempt nonprofits need EIN numbers for reporting purposes.
