    Does an EIN offer home-based businesses an advantage?

      Although I've been offering writing and editing services for almost two years on a freelance basis, I've recently started a home-based writing business and am wondering whether there is any advantage in applying for an EIN now that I am offering services under a business name.

      Is it inconsequential, or would an EIN give the business an advantage over simply using my social security number?

      Looking forward to your input. Thanks!
