Florida LLC and Corporation Registration and Formation

The Sunshine State of Florida is home to almost 405,000 small businesses that contribute to the overall bright economy of the state. There are nearly 1.8 million self-employed business owners as well and this is all because the state provides the best business climate in the Southeast. In fact, the Chief Executive magazine has named the state of Florida as the second-best state when it comes to starting a new business. Are you still thinking if forming a company in Florida is your best choice?

It definitely is!

The 19th largest economy in the world and the 4th largest in the USA offers one of the best business policy climates in the nation. You are probably wondering what is the procedure for setting up a business or how can you form a Florida business?

The procedure of registration and formation of an LLC or corporation may seem like an exhaustive process but once you have hired a top Florida registered agent like us, we will ensure, the entire procedure is simple and quick.

Let’s take a look at how to form a Florida business corporation or LLC.

Florida LLC Registration and Formation

An LLC company formation in Florida can be formed pursuant to Chapter 605, Florida Statutes. The procedure for registration and formation of LLC is as follows:

Step#1: Hire a registered agent

According to 605.0113 Florida statutes, each limited liability company (LLC) as well as foreign LLC will need to designate a registered agent. The agent can be a foreign or domestic entity and should have the authorization for transacting business in the state of Florida. We would take this opportunity to share with you the fact that we are One of the Top Registered Agents in the state and have been responsible for over 11,494 company formations in Florida.

We are in compliance with all regulations in the State of Florida.

Step#2: Choose a Name

If you are planning to form a Florida business LLC then the first step is to identify a name for your business and register it. In the state of Florida, you will be required to register a “fictitious name” if you have chosen any other type of business except an LLC or corporation. One of the important aspects to remember is that your business name needs to be unique and distinguishable.

There are certain factors that will make your name distinguishable like ensuring the business name has proper suffixes like Limited Liability Company, LLC, L.L.C, etc.

How would you know that the name chosen by you is unique? If it has already been registered by another business then your chosen name will get rejected. In such a scenario you can conduct a name search from here. You will need to register a unique business name with the Divisions of Corporations prior to starting your business in Florida.

Note: Business name is filed on a first come, first serve basis.

Step#3: Articles of Organization

LLC company formation in Florida is possible only when certain requirements are met. Once you have registered your business name, you will be required to fill and submit the “Articles of Organization (FL LLC)” form. It has to be filed with the Division of Corporations at the Tallahassee, FL office along with the filing fee.

You can select the ONLINE submission option or we can complete the entire procedure on your behalf.
