Doing Business in Florida as a Foreign Corporation

florida map silhouette with cities namesIf are currently conducting or doing business in Florida as a foreign corporation, or plan on doing so in the future, then it is important that your business be registered as a foreign corporation with the State of Florida.

A foreign corporation is any corporation whose initial incorporation was not filed in Florida. This can be a different country, or it can be another state in the US. The same rule applies to Limited Liability Companies and Partnerships. If you fail to properly register your company with the State, then there could be consequences both for your company and for you individually.

In addition to registering the business with the State of Florida, the foreign company must maintain a registered agent within the State of Florida.
