What if the Location of Your Business Changes? Is a New EIN Needed?

When you make changes to the way your company operates, updating all your records and all the important industry contacts you have developed can be time consuming. To top it off, you need to understand how changes affect every aspect of your administrative management, including your tax reporting obligations. Often, companies change locations to find a more business-friendly environment, and this can lead to entrepreneurs wondering when and if they need to register a new EIN. Luckily, the IRS does not require you to apply for a new EIN when your business address changes, so your current tax ID number will be valid.

When Does a Company Need a New EIN?

The IRS only requires you to get a new tax ID when a new entity is being established for tax purposes. That means:

     If your sole proprietorship has employees or needs to file for certain small business loans
     When establishing any other type of business
     When reincorporating a business into a new structure
     When you manage a nonprofit or estate with income reporting and/or tax obligations

If you are running an established company, then your EIN will be registered to your business under its proper business name. You can use an EIN lookup like the one on IRS-EIN-Tax-ID.com to find out whether your EIN is registered to your business in its current configuration. If you do need a new one, it’s easy to get it by using the site’s application to submit your SS4 online.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
