- Apply for an EIN – If you are seeking to apply for a bank account for the new company a taxpayer identification number will need to be retrieved from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This may be accomplished through the paper form or online.
- Operating Agreement – This form should be completed by every LLC in order to solidify their entity status as well as if there are members to protect themselves from one another. Once it is completed and signed it should be kept for each member’s records.
