Little Rock was recently ranked among the top 150 best large cities to start a business, and Arkansas is an up-and-coming place for entrepreneurs in a variety of fields. The state’s low cost of living makes it an ideal place to get started, and the job environment in much of the state lends itself to recruiting employees. The Ozark Mountains may provide the perfect natural backdrop for you to get your start as a self-employed business owner.
If you have recently entered into a new partnership, formed a business or LLC, or want to establish a business line of credit through a bank in Arkansas, you need an EIN, or Federal Tax ID. GovDocFiling can help you with this critical step.
The Number You Need, When You Need It
Did you know that you may need a Tax ID for your new business, even if you don’t plan to hire employees? There are many benefits to obtaining a Tax ID, even if you are a sole proprietor. This number serves almost as a social security number for your business, and it allows you to avoid using your own personal information and putting yourself at risk for identity theft. It also legitimizes your services to potential clients and allows for you to work as an independent contractor with ease. GovDocFiling can help you get your EIN easily. Whether you’re unsure of which forms to fill out or just short on time, we simplify the process and eliminate your need to deal directly with the IRS. After you indicate your entity’s type, we’ll gather a few quick details from you and send your Tax ID, typically within an hour*. It’s as easy as that.
*Most EINs are processed same or next business day, unless bundled with state formations, processing times will vary.
Changing Your Business Could Mean Changing your EIN
If you already have a business established with an Arkansas tax ID number, chances are your business has grown and changed since you first opened your doors. While some of those changes won’t keep you from legally doing business, some of those changes will require applying for a new tax ID number. For example, if you change the name or location of your LLC, you might not have to apply for a new tax ID number. But if your corporation converts to an LLC, you will need a new federal tax ID.
Make Sure Your Business Is Registered
Before you get your EIN, you’ll need to register your business. Registering your business is not only a necessary step in the process of creating a business, but it also gives you, the business owner, some helpful advantages. For example, you may gain some tax and legal benefits from being a registered business. And you may also garner some personal liability protection should there ever be a legal dispute involving your business, keeping your personal assets separate from your business account.
The Arkansas Secretary of State will help you get your LLC registered. You can find the forms you need to file and contact information for their office if you have any questions. The Secretary of State also offers a helpful survey that once filled out, will give you a check list of all the things you need to do to register your business. And once that’s completed, GovDocFiling can help you get your application for your federal tax ID submitted quickly and easily.
