What Is a Florida Business Address?

When you form an LLC or start a corporation in Florida, you’re required to provide a business address. But what is a Florida business address, and how do you know which address to choose?

A business address is the official address of your Florida business. It’s the address that appears as the “principal address” on your formation documents and annual reports, and it’s nominally the place where owners, members, or managers meet to direct your business.

Your business address could be the address of your storefront, your office, or even your home. But, in any case, it must be the street address of a physical location, not a PO box, and you must be willing to list that address on the public record.

At Sunshine Corporate Filings LLC®, we allow our clients to use our Florida business address free of charge.

Why? Because we’re committed to protecting our clients’ privacy. We know identify theft is a real threat for every business owner, and it can damage your personal life and business reputation. We take our privacy seriously, and so we take your privacy seriously. It’s as simple as that.

And if you’re looking for a Florida mail forwarding service, we can provide that too. 

Our $35 Florida Registered Agent Service, LLC formation service, and other business formation packages already include a free mail forwarding option: up to 5 mail scans per year plus any official state mail we receive for your business. But you can also upgrade to our deluxe or premium Florida mail forwarding packages if you expect to receive more mail or need a business address with a unique suite number.

Florida Business Address Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the Right Florida Business Address

Every document your business files with the Florida Division of Corporations, including your formation documents and annual reports, is freely available at Florida’s Sunbiz website. This is because the Florida Public Records Act requires every state agency in Florida to provide public access to every document filed with the state.

A simple Florida business records search will pull up all of the documents you have on file. Those documents include your name, business address, registered agent information, and other business information. And once this information is there, it stays there—even if you decide to change your business address down the road.

This is one reason why using our Florida business address can be so beneficial. It helps protect your personal information and privacy, but it can also provide a stable address that will stay the same no matter how often your business changes locations.

You can learn more about the Florida Public Records Act at our page on How Your LLC Info Becomes Public.

Why You Can Use Our Florida Business Address

Our clients can use our Florida business address because we own our own the building in Florida that houses our Florida mail forwarding center.

This means you can use our Florida business address for the address of your Florida registered agent (when you hire us!), your principal office address or business address, and your mailing address if you take advantage of one of our mail forwarding packages.

Most Florida registered agent services—heck, even most national registered agent services—can’t provide all of these options because they either don’t own their own buildings in Florida or because they “white-label” and farm-out the actual registered agent job to someone else.

Not us. We’re a Florida business with a commercial business location in Florida that isn’t going anywhere.

How You Can Use Our Florida Business Address

Whether you intend to form a Florida LLC, incorporate in Florida, or simply hire Sunshine Corporate Filings to be your Florida registered agent, you can use our Florida business address in place of your own.

Below, you’ll discover all the ways you can use our Florida business address. Simply scroll down, investigate each package, and select the option that fits your business’s needs.

Florida Business Address + LLC Formation & Free Mail Forwarding ($195 Total)

This option is free when you hire Sunshine Corporate Filings to form your LLC in Florida. It includes the use of our Florida business address as your business’s “principal office address” and up to 5 pieces of non-state mail per year at no charge. When we receive your mail at our Florida business address, we’ll promptly scan it and upload a digital copy to your secure online account.

Importantly, your business’s official documents—those documents we receive on your behalf as your Florida registered agent—don’t count toward this limit of 5 mail scans per year. And you’ll get the same account access and the guidance of our highly-trained support staff that we reserve for all our clients.

Even though this is the cheapest mail forwarding package we offer, it packs a punch, and it’s perfect for Florida LLCs that want address security and don’t expect to receive a lot of non-state mail each year. If you expect to receive more mail, however, or if you need an address with a unique suite number, you might choose the deluxe or premium Florida mail forwarding options described below.

Start Your Florida LLC

Florida Business Address + Deluxe Mail Forwarding ($125/ year)

Our $125/ year Deluxe Mail Forwarding package includes a Florida business address with a unique suite number and up to 25 mail scans per year. This package is a great choice for a growing business that isn’t quite to the point of needing unlimited mail scans, but which needs more mail coverage than the free option described above.

Importantly, you’ll get a unique suite number as part of this package, and that’s a suite number no other business has used or will ever use. That means you can use this address on your website, stationary, and website—whatever your business needs. As with all of our mail forwarding packages, this package’s 25 scan limit doesn’t apply to legal notices and official state mail. The limit only applies to the ordinary mail your business receives at our location.

Order Deluxe Mail Forwarding

Florida Business Address + Premium Mail Forwarding ($225/ year)

Our $225/ year Premium Mail Forwarding Service is the full-steam-ahead package that will cover pretty much all of your Florida business address needs. Like our Deluxe package, our Premium package includes a Florida business address with a unique suite number, access to our support staff, and same-day scanning.

But our Premium Mail Forwarding package also includes unlimited mail scanning, so there’s no need to distinguish between official state mail and non-state mail. We’ll promptly scan every piece of mail you receive and upload a digital copy to your online account. We’ll even shred your junk mail too.

If you want to go further, however, and get a phone number and real office lease for your business, you might consider the Florida virtual office package described below.

Order Premium Mail Forwarding

Florida Business Address + Virtual Office ($600/ year)

Our Florida Virtual Office package has everything. You’ll get a unique suite number, unlimited mail scanning, junk mail shredding, a secure online account, same-day scanning, and our support staff to guide you. But you’ll also get a real office lease and a second phone number with a Florida area code.

When you sign up, we’ll set things up so that a second phone number forwards calls to the phone number of your choice. This means you can do business using a mobile phone, a home phone, or an office phone without giving that number out to anyone.

This is a great option for people who want to keep their information secure, but it’s also useful for businesses that operate in multiple states and simply want an in-state number for their Florida business dealings.

What about the office lease? The lease is for tangible proof purposes, such as when your business needs to provide paper documentation that you’re operating within the state. It won’t lock you into a binding contract with us. That’s not what’s it for. It’s just one more way Sunshine Corporate Filings strives to make business as streamlined and as easy as possible for our clients.

The Benefits of Using Our Florida Business Address

The benefits of using our Florida business address come down to privacy, stability, and legitimacy.

On the one hand, using our Florida business address helps keep your personal information off the public record, reduces your junk mail, and reduces the likelihood that salespeople (or angry customers) will come knocking at your door.

But businesses, especially newer businesses, often change locations, so using our Florida business address can be a way to provide your business with a stable address no matter how many times it moves. You also won’t have to worry about filing paperwork with the Florida Division of Corporations or the Florida Department of Revenue every time your business moves. As far as they’re concerned, you haven’t moved at all.

Lastly, there is the issue of your business’s image or reputation. If you’re working out of your home or don’t have a fixed location, that can make your business seem unstable and less trustworthy. When you use our Florida business address, you’ll get a stable commercial location that will send the right message to your bank, your customers, and your vendors.

But the benefits don’t stop there…

Even apart from the options and packages described above, we can still do more.

Maybe your business needs temporary secretarial services. Well, we have a fully-trained support staff that’s happy to help.

Maybe you don’t have a physical location of your own, but you want to hold an in-person meeting in a professional setting. Well, we have private and secure conference rooms at our offices that you can reserve for that purpose.

Just ask. We’re happy to work with you to iron out the details.

Florida Business Address FAQs

What is the difference between a Florida registered agent address and a Florida business address?

A registered agent address is the street address of your Florida registered agent (that’s us when you hire Sunshine Corporate Filings). This is the address where the Florida Division of Corporations sends official state mail, like annual report notifications, and it’s where your registered agent receives service of process and other legal notices for your business.

A business address is the street address of your principal place of business. For most businesses, the registered agent address and the business address aren’t the same, but they can be the same if you decide to use our Florida business address in place of your own.

What is a virtual business address in Florida?

The term “virtual business address” can mean a lot of things, and people don’t always use the word in the same way. It could refer to a digital mailbox (which is really just a digital mail forwarding option), or it could refer to a real Florida business address like the addresses we offer our clients.

We use the term “business address” instead of “virtual business address” because it makes more sense. When you use our Florida business address, there’s nothing “virtual” going on. It’s just the street address of our physical location in Florida.

Can I use a PO Box as my business address?

No. Your business address must be the street address of a physical location. If you want to receive your business’s mail at a different address, including a PO box, Florida includes an optional “mailing address” category for that purpose.

Should I use my home address for my business?

We don’t recommend it. If you don’t have a fixed location, operate out of your home, or operate your business online, you might be tempted to use your home address on your formation documents and annual reports. But do you really want your home address showing up freely online—attached to your business and your name—where anyone can see it?

We suspect the answer is no, and that’s just one more reason why our clients can use our Florida business address instead. When you use our Florida business address, someone searching for your business at sunbiz.org will simply see our address, not yours.

How do I change my business address in Florida?

To change your business address in Florida, you’ll need to update your information with the various people, institutions, and agencies that rely on your business address to track your company.

You can change your business address with the Florida Division of Corporations at the Sunbiz website, but if you’re also changing your registered agent information, you’ll need to submit Articles of Amendment by mail and by a $25.00 filing fee. You can find the appropriate form at Sunbiz under Forms and Fees.

The Florida Department of Revenue also provides an online option for changing your business address, and you can find information about the IRS’s change of address form here.

But changing your business address also means updating licensing boards, your bank, your vendors, and your frequent customers. You’ll probably need to get new business cards, make changes to your website and online listings, and otherwise make sure the people who need to know about the change find out.

It’s a pain, naturally (like changing your home address but worse), which is why using our Florida business address is so convenient. If you hire Sunshine Corporate Filings LLC®, you can maintain a single, stable business address no matter how often your business changes course.
