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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
