Hire us as your company contact in Florida. We provide a physical office address.
Additionally, we receive mail, lawsuits, and legal and tax information for your company.
Either forming an LLC or incorporating your company in the United States as a non-U.S. citizen requires that you obtain the necessary paperwork, provide the required information (including the name and address of a registered agent), and submit the application, along with the mandatory filing fee, to the Florida Department of State. This submission can be made in-person, via mail, or online.
A non-U.S. LLC formed in Florida operates under the same legal statutes as a domestic LLC. If you have formed your LLC in Florida, no matter where you live, the domestic state of your LLC is Florida, and you will be required to register your LLC in any other state you would like to operate business in.
There are some differences in the taxation of domestic LLCs and non-U.S. resident LLCs that can become complicated. It’s a good idea to review these differences with a CPA when choosing what entity is right for you and how you plan to grow your company in the United States.
In Florida, the annual report that non-U.S. resident companies are required to submit is the same as the annual report that domestic companies submit. It is due the year after forming your business between January 1st and May 1st.
We provide you with reminders for state compliance reports. An annual report must be filed each year for your business entity to maintain an "active status" with the Department of State. It is required, whether or not you need to make changes.
Registering a business name in Florida is done when you form your business entity (LLC or corporation) with the state. You must first choose your business structure., Then we will do a business name search to ensure name availability. Afterward, we will form your entity with your business name with the state. Some businesses may also prefer to just register a DBA. We can help with filing your "doing-business-as" name too.
We will take care all of it for you.
Any profit corporation, limited liability company, limited partnership or limited liability limited partnership annual report filing will have until 11:59 PM EST on Sunday May 1, 2022, before a $400 late fee is assessed.
