There are two methods to change a registered agent in Florida: filing a Statement of Change with the Division of Corporations; or changing your Florida registered agent information on an Annual Report. Either method is acceptable, but if you are changing FL registered agents outside your annual reporting window, you should file the Statement of Change.
Step 1: Fill Out the Form
The name of the form is the same for both LLCs and Corporations (Statement of Change of Registered Office or Registered Agent), but that actual forms are different for each entity. Make sure that you fill out the proper form for your Florida business.
Step 2: Deliver to Division of Corporations
The form can be mailed, faxed or hand delivered to the Division of Corporations. A faxed filing will require a Sunbiz E-File Account formed in advance of the filing.
Step 3: Pay the Fee
The filing fee for a Florida LLC is $25. The fee for corporations in Florida is $35. A check or money order can be sent with mailed filings. Cash will be accepted only in person.
Step 4: Wait for Processing
Typical processing is five to seven business days.
