New Mexico EIN and anonymity

Not US citizen. I will register New Mexico LLC for anonymity reasons. I need to get EIN from IRS for any payment processor to work with me, right?

If I submit my documents to IRS will my information be shown anywhere? I don't mind the government knowing, but I need 101% anonymity from my competition in this niche.

Also, what about registering 2 NM companies and using them to own UK LLP. This way the only ones knowing my true identity would be the bank and payment processor. How difficult would it be to get accepted to TW/Stripe or something similar with this setup?

Can't help you on your second question, but I am almost certain that nobody else will know your info if you file an EIN application - it's very secure. HOWEVER, just FYI the IRS do send a confirmation letter to your registered address (which goes to your registered agent 99% of the time) which I think has your personal name on it.

but it will not go straight to the tax office where he lives which may be the important point.

Thanks! What about the consequences of submitting required form 5472, will this deanonymize me any more than submitting my info to IRS to get EIN?

You will need to file a pro forma 1040NR, 1120 and 5472. Before you can do so, you will have to apply for an ITIN for yourself, which requires a certified copy of your passport. No one other than the IRS will see anything you file.

Regarding TW, it is very easy to open an account for your NM LLC, just the company docs and your passport/address proof. UK LLP owned by 2 NM LLC adds unnecessary complexity.
