Creating a Gateway Account

Creating a Company Account

Gateway accounts are based on the business' FEIN (Federal Employer ID Number) or Social Security Number (in the case of a sole proprietor without a FEIN).

If a person owns multiple businesses with different FEINs, a separate Gateway account must be created for each FEIN.

To set up a Company Account:

Follow the "Create a Gateway Account" link on the login page. You will go through a two-part process, where you will first create the Company Account and then you will create your Gateway Username.

In order to create the company account, you will need the following information:

  • Company FEIN (or SSN)
  • Company name
  • Contact information for a company representative

Once you complete the Company account, you will create your Gateway Username. You become the initial Company Administrator and have the ability to create additional users and define their access levels. For more information, see Company Administrator functions.

Creating a Gateway Username

Follow the "Create a Gateway Account" link on the login page. You must provide the FEIN or SSN for the business for which you would like to access Gateway services.

Once you provide your personal information, the system will generate an email request to the business' Company Administrator. Once the Company Administrator has approved the request and assigned your access, you will receive your password at the email address you provided.
