what is the equilevent to an ABN australian business number in america?

im opening a business in america LA and our staff work commission only , in australia we make them get ABN's australian business numbers so they are contractors ( ahve there own business) its free and very similar to a tax file number . In a america i want to do the same so we dont have to pay them a base wage or base salary as the commission are great and it takes awhile to find people that can do it so commission only drives them to succeed.

    Small businesses will need an EIN.

    The IRS calls the person the "responsible party." They want you to identify “principal officer, general partner, grantor, owner, or trustor." This most often the same as the Registered Agent for an LLC or corporation. Include the social security number, ITIN, or EIN of this person or entity.
