First, shareholders in a limited liability company (LLC) are actually called members. Importantly, in Delaware, members of an LLC can remain anonymous. Several other states — such as New Mexico, Wyoming and Nevada — also don’t require public disclosure of a company’s owners. It’s important to note that some banks will require identification in order to open a business account. Alternatively, they’ll require a federal employer identification number (EIN), the application of which requires the name of the individual whom set up the LLC.
