If a foreign company wants to set up foot in the US and incorporates a C-Corp (for instance, in Delaware) without (yet) a management team in the US, how can it get an EIN from the IRS?
It used to be that the incorporator (CPA, lawyer...) could enter its own SSN as the EIN requester but now the IRS apparently mandates that the person providing its SSN have an actual role in the company or call the IRS by phone to get the EIN without the SSN requirement.
Has anyone here gone through this process and has valuable feedback? Is it overly complex and long?
That's great feedback, thank you!
Did they ask that you send them any piece of evidence (such as the certificate of registration) that shows you're the company owner or have power-of-attorney to request such an EIN?
Thanks again, Eric.
Interesting to know that they don't request any supporting document or evidence, while they require a valid SSN on their online form...
