Incorporations for foreign individuals FAQ
Can I incorporate a company as a Foreign Individual?
Yes, you can absolutely still file, even if you're not a US citizen or do not have a US Social Security Number.
How can I get my EIN?
The IRS allows FEIN obtainment to foreign individuals, however, the process to obtain is different from the process used to obtain an EIN for individuals with a social security number. If this option is selected, it will require you to sign the form which we will prepare and fax for you upon the completion of your order.
How long does the EIN take to be provided?
Assignment of an EIN typically takes approximately 3 months to obtain after the prepared document provided has been faxed to the IRS.
