Détail de la question
I am starting a small catering company and need to open a business bank account.

Hi Mary, For a sole proprietorship you could open a bank account with your SSN provided you are doing business just under your name. Otherwise you may need to also obtain a “DBA certificate” which is a state thing and does not require EIN. Publié le 23/05/19

There are instances where an individual is required to have an EIN to register a business or it is very desirable to have one. Many banks require an EIN before they will set up a bank account for a business. I advise all my clients to get EIN's and not use their SSN's for the simple sake of security and personal data protection.

you need a EIN if it is a corporation or LLC, a SSC if you are a sole proprietorship. Publié le 28/05/19
