I have 2 small business LLC's registered in Wisconsin, each with their own EIN. Call them Company A LLC and Company B LLC. I'm converting Company A LLC into an S Corp. Company B LLC will have it's sales run under Company A LLC, and cease operating as a separate entity. I plan on calling Company B LLC, Company B Shop.
I need to get a new checking account in the name of Company B Shop but my bank is saying that I need to contact the IRS and get a new SS-4 Form listing Company B Shop with Company A LLC's EIN. I tried contacting the IRS and wasn't able to get through. My accountant said I just need to setup a DBA through the state of Wisconsin. Can anyone point me in the right direction here? Thanks in advance and I know it's confusing!
