Empowering founders like you around the world

Alex Lieberman

Co-founder of Morning Brew

I created my LLC with doola. I thought it was very smooth, it was done within a day and all I hit was like 5 buttons.

Mazeer Mawjood

Founder of AuroraRCM

I was looking for a partner who was responsive, number one, and who had the ability, the flexibility to, accommodate the rapid changes that any business will need… These people [doola] know what they’re talking about.

Kari Heron

Founder of Chef and Steward

[Why doola?] I’ve been researching for over a year… it was my interaction primarily with the doola team, the back and forth, the questions, it had to be done.

Manja Munda

Co-founder of Grow & Scale

I would recommend doola because it’s a hassle-free experience. You don’t need to spend hours on researching how to start a company, what documents you need to fill in, ect. It’s a one-stop place to start your business.

Calvin Hamilton

CEO at rezy.io

But then once I found out about doola, I then re-registered my LLC there and honestly, there was a night-and-day difference compared to doing it yourself, in a significantly better process than using a service like [other competitors]…

What is an EIN?

An Employer Identification Number is the tax identification number for your organization and a requirement of many banks or institutions (such as the IRS) to carry out business in the US. Once your EIN is acquired, you can apply for business bank accounts and payment gateways. Learn more about the full process.

What is an ITIN?

An Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) can be used as an alternative for a Social Security Number (SSN) in some cases and is not a requirement in most cases. However, you will be required to have one if you wish to apply for a PayPal account or certain bank accounts. We walk you through how this process looks like in our guide!

What is an LLC (Limited Liability Company)?

A limited liability company is a formal business structure (created as per state law) where the business is legally distinct from the owner(s). It may have a single owner in the case of a Single-Member LLC or multiple owners in the case of a Multi-Member LLC.

An LLC combines the perks of a corporation (protection against personal liability) and a partnership (pass-through taxation). Since the business has a separate legal existence, the members are not personally liable for the debts and obligations of the Company.

State laws stipulate how LLCs should be incorporated. Some states require specific documents, such as the articles of organization, membership agreement, etc., to be filed with the authorities.
