How to Register an LLC for Banking


If you’re thinking about opening a business account to help your LLC or corporation, the first thing to do is make sure your company is legally registered. You’ll need to form an LLC with the state government, which involves filing paperwork such as articles of organization and bylaws with them; registering for an employer identification number (EIN) with the IRS, and getting an Employer Identification Number (EIN). Once you have these things in place, it’s time to open your business bank account!

Get EIN from the IRS

To do so, follow these steps:

  • Go to the IRS business portal and click on “Apply for an Employer Identification Number (EIN).”
  • Read through all the information provided by this website and select an appropriate location for your business. Then, press “Continue” to continue with the application process.
  • Fill in all required fields carefully and accurately (including name, address, and other company details). Be sure that you enter “LLC” as a type of organization instead of “Corporation,” since LLC is a limited liability company whereas a Corporation is not limited by its owners’ personal assets or liabilities if anything goes wrong with the company’s finances at some point in time later on down the road when operating under different management than theirs initially did when first starting out back then during opening day ceremonies etcetera…

Form your LLC with the state

In order to open a bank account for your LLC, you must first register your business with the state in which it will operate. This is done by filing a certificate of formation (or articles of incorporation) with your state’s Secretary of State Office. In most cases, this requires paying an application fee and filling out a few forms. Once filed, you will receive an official document stating that your business is legally registered as an LLC (or another type of entity).

Most states will also require you to file a separate application for your LLC to open a bank account. This is typically done through the same state agency that handles business registrations.  Once you have received these documents, take them to your bank.

Open a Bank Account

Once you have your LLC in place, you can open a business account with any bank or credit union. The process is much the same as opening an individual checking account: you’ll need to provide the bank with some basic information about yourself and your business, including a name, address (preferably where you conduct most of your business-related activities), and the EIN number for your LLC. In addition, it’s likely that the bank will ask for references from other companies or individuals who are familiar with how well-established you are as a business entity (i.e., whether they think that they could trust this business to pay them back on time).

There are also alternative options available if you don’t want to deal with going through all this paperwork, like opening a virtual bank account online instead of going into a person at one of their physical branches.

The entire process of opening an LLC is relatively simple. The paperwork required is minimal and the benefits are great, but it’s important to note that there are other options available as well. If you’re looking for a business entity with fewer restrictions and more flexibility, then consider forming an S-corporation instead.

Apply for an employer identification number (EIN)

If you’re starting a business and want to open a bank account, you need an Employer Identification Number (EIN). Your EIN is like a social security number for your company. You can apply for it on the IRS website or by phone. If you prefer, you can apply in person at a local IRS office.

You may also be required to register with other state agencies if you plan on doing business in your state.

You’ll also need a business license if you plan on operating in your city or county. This can usually be done online, by phone, or in person.

This can be used for opening checking accounts

When you register your company, the IRS will give you an Employer Identification Number (EIN). This is not a tax ID number, but it’s used to open checking accounts and pay taxes. If you need to open an account at any bank that has Federal Reserve oversight, they’ll ask for your EIN—not a Social Security Number.

You can use this number as proof of legal existence when applying for services such as credit cards or car insurance.


If you’re looking to open a line of credit, it’s important to know what your options are. While there are many different types of banking services out there, some may be better suited for your business than others. The first step is knowing what’s available and how those options fit into your overall financial plan. You should also consider how much money you want to spend on each service before making any final decisions.
