by Florida Registered Agent LLC
A Florida registered agent is required for all corporate filings done at Sunbiz.org and the Florida Division of Corporations. All corporate filings must list a Florida physical address. We include listing our registered office address as your physical, principle, mailing, and registered agent address. But we don’t stop there!
As your Florida registered agent, we allow our clients to list our registered office address for the members, managers, officer, directors, the filing cover letter, and annual report filings in order to keep your address off of the Florida Division of Corporations public records. This is all just included in our service for just $49 a year.
Why is the Registered Agent Address so important?
Florida has been a leader in transparency in the US for over a century. We started the “Public Records Law” in 1909 and followed it up with greater clarity in 1967, with the addition of open records via the “Government in the Sunshine Law”, otherwise known as just “The Sunshine Law”. It’s Chapter 286 of the Florida Statutes, but it basically says that ANY record filed or recorded with a government body in Florida is made permanently accessible. If you’ve done business or lived long enough here, you’ll practically find yourself looking at a business on Sunbiz.org before checking out their reviews. It’s what we’ve become accustomed to. The frustrating thing is that many business owners do not realize they have an alternative to listing their home address or cheap rental on their beginning corporate papers. For $49 a year, you can show the stability of listing a commercial registered agent indefinitely and keep your home address private. The papers you file with the Division of Corporations, will become permanent parts of Florida history. Someday your business may grow to a point where you don’t want to show the chain of low rent offices you’ve had or show how many times you’ve had to move throughout your companies history. We can help you show stability to the outside world.
