haven't done my taxes i'm too turnt up haven't done my taxes i'm too turnt up nice where are you calling from today sorry can you please repeat it again i said where are you calling from today oh i'm coming from argentina oh nice this card you want to speak in spanish your english seems pretty good okay okay we can talk in english it's fine with you so great you're from argentina tell me a little bit about your uh your your business what's going on well i just want to start a company in the united states here i just sell some how we call it it's uh i i don't know the word in english but it's all about pharmacy stuff um like medicine yeah it's like medicine yeah okay but i'm not only only selling this i'm also trying to start a small business or just to sell something that is like a referral a business in the united states but i'm i'm not already established a company but it's very difficult for us as a corner to have a social security number and is the reason why i contact a law firm and they said yes we can just provide you ei but you need to pay something that it looks like you already made some benefit so you can declare this benefit and with this benefit you can just apply for your own yeah i don't understand what you're what you're referring to with that comment are you saying that what what have you done already do you already have did you already set up a us company and bank account on those things no no no i can't i can't set up an account uh without a pm yeah i know well that's something that um obviously like you get open the company then you get an ein then you open the bank account yeah so this is the reason yeah so i couldn't open an account a company but they offered me to have a number without without setting a full company yet why would you want that well because i can because i want to work this is for sure but the problem is i don't want to pay a lot of money in the beginning you don't want to pay a lot of money for what in the beginning to set up the company oh okay because they said that if you have the number then you can have the number parking and then you can use it in the next 10 years so yeah i don't ever i've i've never applied for an ein number for an individual i i figured out that you couldn't you can do it but i've never done it i don't know why because it's basically it's not that expensive if you're gonna do it all yourself and figure it out anyways opening an llc is only going to cost you another 250 dollars at them like it's not going to cost that much more yeah i mean if you if you just see the cost of registering an llc with the state isn't isn't that high it's only like 250 it's not too expensive to just open an llc so i mean i would just do it okay and what happened what happened if yeah i start i start operating the company then i need to declare all my all my activities you don't have to pay you don't have to pay taxes but you have reports to file every year sir yeah this is this is what i don't know really how to do it because maybe it's easier to get this because i don't know really i i thought and the end was was enough to have all things a little bit more clear it might be i think most most um like the only mercury bank is like the only online bank that you could probably use and i don't know if they're going to open an account which is you personally having an ein number okay i mean you should you should i guess you should contact them and ask them you can email them basically give you some kind of insights on that okay i can't do that but i'm very interested in the cost that you said that is 350 and then well it's a long form so i can i can make easily some mistakes trying to fill it out by myself you know if i just mark other space that i should i shouldn't then i could have some problems right well i don't i don't i i don't understand maybe i can't hear you very well um what do you mean marketing space so when when we are we are filling up the form that i need to mark just to clean it up correctly yeah i mean you need to complete but yeah you need to complete the form of course like you have to you have to give them like you have to complete the form otherwise they're not going to give you the ein number yeah of course this for sure but i don't want to make any mistake because if i make a mistake yeah i have a couple i have a couple videos going over the the ss4 completion on the channel you should they they should be helpful enough and there's instructions for the forum as well okay so i need to follow this form is these videos and well and you will charge some some costs just in considering the company already working on right cool do you charge costs for just uh doing the other things that the company needs yeah we i have to keep because there's so many different things i don't i don't really do piecemeal services because it just doesn't it's too much it's too much work it's too crazy and it's not worth it so what we usually do is full setup services and that's usually for a business that are established and they don't want to they don't have time to just figure it all out and they want to work with a professional so i work with companies like that and do the whole setup and then i do the annual forms at the end of the year and then coming out probably the end of the week is a course that i put together explaining step by step how to do all of it as well um itin numbers bank accounts and that should be open by the end of the week only in english so far but i'll probably do it in spanish hopefully before the end of the year but all both of the courses that i have because i have a course on how to complete the tax forms at the end of the year and then a course on also how to set up your company what kind of company is best how to operate it how it works things like okay that all in english and this will be uh this is the same right what will be saved did you say in the next weeks it should it's basically done i'm just finishing up the website and putting it all up and everything um all of the filming is basically done it's all like back end stuff so i'm expecting it to be done by the end of the week if not maybe next week okay so if you are not i am working with individuals but i'm just saying you have like a more expensive like it's it's uh i'll work with anyone you just have to pay or pay our rates you know and i'm saying most of my clients most of my clients generally are people who are already operating doing pretty well and just want to get it done right right away with a professional that does it instead of trying to figure it out online and guessing and making mistakes but if you're just starting you have a very limited budget that's why i have the channel up because there's a lot of good information on the channel both on how to how to how things work theoretically and how the us tax system works and also how to complete the forms i'm due to make another ss4 video that's something that's searched so often so i um you know i redo it every once in a while but right now the problem is when you send in your ss4 the irs is taking like two months to return the forms they're taking
Thanks for your comment Stuart Kinkella, have a nice day.

so the topic would about today is is it right or wrong what should you do should you file your LLC first or should you get your EIN number okay so for individuals who do not know your EIN number it's also known as your employer's identification number and that is through on a federal level you do that with the IRS your LLC which is also known as your limited liability company it is done on a state level so you're gonna do that with your secretary of state whatever state you in the Secretary of State for Georgiou the Secretary of State for Illinois so one of the reasons one of the main reasons you want to I guess we need the answer should you file your LLC form your LLC or your ein for first drum roll please and the answer is you need to file your LLC first because you want to be recognized on the state level and the reason that I say this is that because when you go through the state level there takes some dotted some days to get approved for your LLC so you go in and you fill out your information to get your LLC makes days for the approval and then on top of the days for the approval they they ask you several different names you just can't put one name because one name it though one name may be taken so when the names going to be taking a cookie reject it so you don't want to go and file and get an EIN number and then your LLC isn't even approved that way it doesn't match the ultimate goal is for your LLC and your EIN to match your EIN is pretty much instant it's gonna die recisions gonna give it to you the state however goes through an approval process to form your LLC so you don't want it to be rejected and then the questions that the IRS once you get your LLC you go and you file your EIN number the ein the IRS application to get your EIN number you're gonna they're gonna ask you what date was your state was your LLC formated so you're gonna have to know that answer and you going into it and not knowing the answer that's not answering a question right it's not able to submit it in honestly well you're going to get your EIN number the first thing that they access is this information truthful to your knowledge and your answering yes this is the formation you don't even have the information from your arrows LLC so make sure that when you're fouling or you're forming your business you're gonna get your LLC first and then once everything is approved and going through with your LLC you're gonna then transition and get your EIN number through the federal government so if you have done things backwards and you've already taken you got your EIN in number you don't have your state number you need to get your state number cuz really everything is done through the state and then the IRS kind of just approves it so you want to get your LLC first if you don't say say if you got your EIN first and then you ll see but they matched up everything went through you're good don't do anything if you're a person where they didn't match say the names didn't match you can do one or two things you can go in and you can cancel your EIN number you can go and cancel it or you can go in and get a new ein fill out the application and so it will match the LLC so if you guys have any questions pertaining to forming urine your LLC and then your EIN definitely type it into the comment section I can definitely go ahead and answer that but the the moral of today the big lesson for today is that you need to file to form your LLC before you form your EIN your LLC is on a state level so then you you go to your state and you say hey I want to start this business these are the names that I'm thinking about this is how I think this is this is all the information by address all the information the state approves it once the state approve it then you go and you go to the irs.gov website apply for AI n and the IRS with the ein application they're going to ask you the information that's on your state information for your business formation so those two go hand-in-hand it can be done what you do one without the other but you just don't want to - you just want to do things right the first time so you're not doubling back and having to do anything else okay if you guys have any questions for me pertaining to Texas or bookkeeping go ahead and feel free to type it in the comments DM me the questions or you can give me a call I offer 15-minute consultations so that we can talk through and see what what business is best for you how to hor made it I also answer questions about business formation and business formation services so if you guys have any questions about that go ahead and reach out to me just remember it's very important to do things right the first time but you know if you don't it's okay you feel the board you are doing things you can fix them it is fixable so if you have any questions feel free to reach out to me but for today that is it I am my Shree Rhodes your tax GPA is helping you to navigate your way through Texas I will see you again next time
