question about corporate tax ID's and ordering
« on: May 12, 2003, 12:24:00 AM »
Somebody in a far far away landwas trying to order some Alpha-methyl-styrene for use as a plasticizer for Ethylene-vinylacete copolymer adhesive formulation he was patenting.
The problem is all the companies he calls say they will only sell it if he has a corporate tax id or registers an account linked to bank accounts and trade references.
So someone was wondering would it be easier to go to a place that does custom formulations of chemicals and request a "formulation" for use as a plasticizer?
Would thier requirements be less stringent?

Get a PO Box with a novelty ID and start a corporation at that address. It may not work, but it's worth a try.

That's going to be a tall order

It's not a good idea to try and set up a taxable corporation under a false name.
unless you really know what your doing, you can get in serious trouble, with all sorts of "nice" people.
