Florida LLC Registration

Online business registration in all 50 US States with ease!

How to SetUp an LLC

If you wish to start a business in the Sunshine State, Florida requires you to register your business with the Florida Department of State: Division of Corporations. Your new company will need this to apply for a federal employer identification number (or FEIN), which you can think of as your company’s social security number.

Benefits of Florida business registration include personal liability protection, legal protections and significant tax benefits. Choosing to register an LLC will mean you include the acronym at the end of your business name, and is usually the first choice for small business owners seeking to protect their personal assets and funds in case the business itself becomes indebted or runs into other legal trouble.

We have answered some of the most common questions around Florida business registration below, which is predominantly aimed at assisting those for whom Florida will be their business’ principal address. For more information on doing business as corporations, sole proprietorships, or for those with a business structure such as franchising, we recommend getting in touch with our team for a more tailored response.

Should I register my business as an LLC?

LLCs, or limited liability corporations, benefit from a large list of legal protections. When you register your business as an LLC in Florida, you essentially separate yourself as a person and business owner from the debts and financial affairs of the company – providing a degree of protection to your personal assets from future legal disputes. As an example, should a business go into liquidation, you only stand to lose what was invested in the business itself, and parties will not have access to your personal assets and bank account in an attempt to recoup debts.

LLCs were designed to encourage entrepreneurs to establish a business with reduced risk. While you are not entirely free of risk, an LLC drastically reduces risks and can even provide reprieves for taxes.

For almost anyone looking to start a small business, an LLC is the way to go. This business structure affords significant protections that any business can appreciate.

Why form an LLC in Florida?

Nicknamed the Sunshine State, Florida soared to 3rd place on the list of US states with the highest population, with an influx of approximately 900 net new inhabitants every day. Florida also boasts the 4th largest state economy in the whole of the US. This puts it in an incredible position for future economic growth and prosperity, which many budding business owners in Florida are taking advantage of.

Professional regulation in the state of Florida is generous towards a limited liability company, with ongoing investments going into stimulating small business development and growth. For this reason, Florida is a prized business location for small businesses, with a relatively stable history of LLC survival rates.

According to The Florida SBDC Network, around 80% of businesses survive their first year, and 50% are still standing strong five years later, which puts business survival rates at roughly average when compared to the rest of the US.

Florida has a strong future economic trajectory, with ample Florida business entities already enjoying the financial stimulus and great access to target audiences due to its large population. Florida business entities on the smaller side can also enjoy strong local support from its residents, with a firm community spirit that positively impacts local sales.

Do I need a business license in Florida?

As stated by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the answer to whether or not you require a business license in Florida varies. For many small businesses as well as sole proprietorships, registering your Florida business is optional. However, as the SBA notes, it is generally highly recommended that you do register your business, as not doing so means you will miss out on personal liability protection, as well as both legal and tax benefits.

If you are starting a new business and your business location is going to be Florida, then it is likely you will want or need to obtain Florida LLC registration. Filing this will also be the first step towards securing an employer identification number, or EIN, which can be used as your business’ social security number. Shy of this employer identification number, you may be required to use your own personal social security number on your business’ behalf.

What are the fees for Florida LLC registration?

There may be several nominal fees associated with LLC registration that are payable to the Florida Department of State: Division of Corporations. The entry point generally includes a $100 filing fee and a $25 registered agent fee. Several other fees may be required depending on circumstances, including fees for Annual Reports, a copy of records, amendments, a Certificate of Status, Change of Registered Agent, Articles of Correction, Certificate of Conversion, Reinstatement Fee, and more.

Our team can help you navigate business license fees to ensure minimal expenses, including those associated with clerical errors. It is worth noting that the fees associated with registering your business are completely outweighed by the peace of mind of your business being a legal entity and that you have personal liability protections, tax benefits, and legal benefits, which could otherwise result in far greater expenses.
