Step 2 – For our sample we are going to do the search through the most popular method by name. As you can see above, just type in the LLC you are searching for and click ‘search now’ or hit enter on your keyboard.
For our sample search we are going to be searching the term ‘florida’.
Step 3 – You can see that such a broad search as ‘florida’ would bring up many results. This at least gives you an idea of how the results are laid out with a preview of the LLC’s document number and active or inactive status.
We are going to click on the 1st LLC which is titled ‘THE FLORIDA COMPANY LLC’.
Step 4 – As you can see from the image above, the LLC Entity Page has all public information listed with the Secretary of State including but not limited to: Document Number, EIN Number, Incorporation Date, Principal Address, Mailing Address, Registered Agent Name and Address, Member(s) (Owner(s)), and all filings.
How to Create an LLC in Florida
Step 1 – Download or fill out online one of the Articles of Organization forms below:
Domestic – Download – File Online – For all residents of Florida who wish to setup an LLC. Most popular.
Foreign – Download – File Online – For LLC’s that are located in another State but wish to operate in Florida.
Step 2 – If you are seeking a bank account after incorporation, you will need to apply for an EIN number. This registers your entity with the IRS and no bank account can be opened unless this has been completed.
