Question – I wanted to know if I could open a business bank account without a ein#?
Our Answer – As long as you are a sole proprietorship and have no employees, banks are allowed to open business accounts with just the owner’s SSN. With that said however, some banks either forget this or have rules that say the business has to have an EIN. I think most often though, they are just used to seeing the EIN and forget that an SSN can be used.
