Q&A: How do I open a bank account for my business?

I'd like to open a business bank account in the United States. I'm from Columbia and don't have a Social Security number. However, I have a Delaware-based company with an EIN. Is that even possible?

Before starting a business, you should definitely consult with a local accountant who is familiar with your legal system. While opening a business account may not be necessary depending on the situation, it may be advantageous. A good accountant will provide you with the information you require.
