– 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, which will be a permanent public record for that business. 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.

What is the Function of a Florida Registered Agent?
The function of a registered agent in Florida is to maintain a physical address located within the state limits that is easily accessible and open during normal business hours, where the name of the person or business listed as the registered agent will accept a summons, service of process, or legal notice. Sending mail to the registered agent appointed on the Florida Sunbiz corporate records is legal proof that the business has been notified and starts a legal notification timeline.

The simplest and cheapest way to change your registered agent in Florida is to update your registered agent and registered office address on your annual report.

If you have a Florida Corporation or a Florida Limited Partnership, the cost is $35 to change your registered agent and office. If you have a Florida Limited Liability Company, the cost is $25 to change your registered office and registered agent. The new Florida registered agent must sign the consent part of these forms and it must be submitted to the Florida Division of Corporations by paper and check. When changing your agent to Florida Registered Agent LLC, when you sign up for our service, you can elect to change the agent to us on your order and we’ll do this filing for you simply for the state mandated filing fees. If you want to do the change of agent filing yourself, you’ll find all the needed forms and cover letters in your online account, pre-signed and ready for you to do the filing yourself.
