What is a C-Corp?

A C-Corporation (C-Corp) is a type of ownership structure where the business and its owners 
are considered completely separate entities for liability and tax purposes. This business structure allows the greatest amount of personal liability protection while also making it easier to raise funds. 
In exchange for double taxation, business owners can reinvest the profits into the company at a lower corporate tax rate. Currently, the vast majority 
of C-Corps are publicly traded companies.

Why Do You Need an EIN for a C-Corp?

All C-Corps are required to obtain an Employer Identification Number (EIN) federal tax purposes. This federal tax ID number allows you to legally operate and carry out fundamental business tasks, including:

for a business loan both require an EIN, and are valuable assets and options for your C-Corp

Building your credit score

Establishing a good credit score for your corporation will improve your chances of securing a loan and other financial advancements

Hiring employees

Specifically, an EIN allows you to set up payroll and employee benefits

Paying taxes

This is a necessary part of legally owning and operating 
any business
