1) Form Your Company
As soon as we get some information and payment, we start forming your company!
We don't need any documents to get started.
Just fill out this form with:
Your Company Name
Your Personal Address (Anywhere in the world!)
Your Email (So we can stay in touch!)
*Note: Later in the process, you may need your passport to set up your bank account.
Timeline: 1 week (on average!)
Dependencies: State processing speeds
2) Apply for Your EIN
Once your company is formed, we start working on your EIN application (Employer Identification Number).
* Note: A U.S. Social Security Number (SSN) is not needed and we apply on your behalf!
Timeline (with SSN): 1 week (on average!)
Timeline (without SSN): 45 - 90 business days (on average!)
Dependencies: The IRS (Internal Revenue Service) processing speeds.
*Note: The IRS has been severely impacted by COVID-19 which has delayed filing speeds significantly. We are working around the clock to get EIN applications to the IRS as fast as possible and advise entrepreneurs to submit applications as quickly as they can.
3) Set Up Your Bank
Once you get your EIN (required for a bank account!), you're ready to apply for a U.S. Bank Account through our custom partner portal.
Timeline: 1-2 weeks (on average!)
Dependencies: The bank set up process
4) Payment Processor
Once your bank account is set up, we'll help you connect it to your payment processor so you can start accessing the payments sent to your account!
Timeline: A few days (on average!)
