First, a company was established in California named "ABC" as form of S Corp.
Second, the company now relocate to Delaware and established its name as "ABC Inc." as for of S Corp.
Is it okay to use the same EIN since the intention is the same?
It is unclear what you mean by “relocate”. If it is a different entity entirely than it should have a different EIN.
You should address this with the company’s general counsel. If you are not willing to do that you should at least review the IRS website on EIN regulations to find material applicable to whatever your situation is.
My responses on this website do not constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship. Please do not message or phone me for additional advice as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the exception being for serious prospective clients).
Two unique entities require separate EIN’s. You want them separate for accounting and liability reasons. Do you have CPA and legal counsel??? Get that advice now.
This commentary does not result in any attorney/client relationship nor constitute legal advice as to a particular fact situation or status of a reader. Consult and retain legal counsel in the State of Michigan for pursuit of such a relationship.
Having the same intention is irrelevant. Example: General Motors and Ford Motor Company have the same intention--but not the same EIN.
