Florida USA Limited Liability Company (LLC) Formation

Florida is an attractive jurisdiction in which to incorporate as sales tax applies only to products sold within Florida and, unlike many other US states, there is no Personal Income Tax. Furthermore, the relaxed reporting standards meaning companies registered in Florida are not required to file annual accounts and directors and shareholders both benefit from a high degree of privacy.

Company Name

Company names must be unique and not deceptively similar to other company names registered in Florida. We are able to check that your proposed company name is appropriate. LLC company names must end with ‘Limited Liability Company’, ‘Limited Company’ or an appropriate abbreviation such as ‘LLC’ or ‘LC’. The word ‘Limited’ alone may not be used. Certain words such as Bank, Mortgage and Loan require approval from the Department of Financial Regulation to use.

Registered Office

Companies require a registered agent and a registered office where the Secretary of State and other official parties may send legal documents. Companies are not obliged to have their registered office in Florida. If the company’s registered office is in Florida you may act as your own registered agent, however, if it is outside of Florida we can provide you with a resident agent as part of our Corporate Administration Package.

Directors

Only one director of any nationality is required. Directors benefit from a great degree of confidentiality as there is no official register of directors available to the public.

Shareholders

Only a single shareholder is required and corporate shareholders are permitted. For LLC and C Corporations shareholders may be of any residency but S Corporations require a resident shareholder. There is no requirement to file shareholder registers with the authorities meaning shareholder details are not publicly available.

Share Capital

There is no minimum share capital requirement for incorporations in Florida.

Filing Requirements

There is no requirement for a company registered in Florida to file accounts, director registers or shareholder registers.

Timescale

The incorporation process takes only three to four days once we have received all the necessary documentation.
