Indiana is home to a vast quantity of covered bridges, one of the most prestigious opera programs in the country, and the Indianapolis 500 Car Race, one of the largest sporting events in the world. It may also be home to your next employee. Fortunately, no matter where your business is based, collaborating across state lines is easy in this era of remote work.

Bringing on a new employee can be exciting, but there’s often a lot to do as well. You want to onboard your new hire as quickly and smoothly as possible to ensure their success at your organization. But before you get started with onboarding, you’ll need to register your company with the state of Illinois.

Register your business in Indiana in four easy steps:

  1. Create an account with INBiz to register with the Indiana Department of Revenue.
  2. Once you’ve created an account, you can register to receive your Withholding Account Number.
  3. Next, you’ll need to register with the Department of Workforce Development.
  4. After you’ve created an account, you can register for a State Unemployment Tax Account number online.

You’ll receive your Withholding Account number in about 2-3 days by email, and your State Unemployment Tax Account number immediately after registering.
Once you have both account numbers, you’ll be able to register new employees, file wage reports, and submit unemployment taxes online. You are responsible for paying unemployment taxes if you are a new employer in Indiana and have paid $1 or more to a worker performing covered services within the state. Wage reports are due quarterly. The Department of Workforce development has a helpful FAQ section, if you have additional questions.
