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.

I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes....

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose?

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
