Article 1: Name
You must list the full name of your Florida LLC. The name must end with the words: Limited Liability Company, LLC or L.L.C.
Article 2: Principal Office
You must list the street address of your company’s principal office and mailing address (if different). Your principal business office is the central location of your company, the office where you keep your official company documents and financial records.
When you hire Sunshine Corporate Filings LLC®, you can use our Florida business address for both your principal office address and your business mailing address.
Article 3: Registered Agent
Every business entity in the State is required to appoint a Florida registered agent. You must list your registered agent’s name and their physical street address. You cannot list a PO box, or your filing will be rejected.
Article 4: Managers and Members
This article includes the names and addresses of each person authorized to make management decisions for your LLC. Your members have offered Florida LLC capital contributions in exchange for ownership percentages, but this does not necessarily mean that they have managerial rights.
Your Florida LLC management consists of those individuals or entities that have been designated as managers of your company. An authorized member/manager would have the power, for example, to vote to ratify a Florida LLC resolution to open bank accounts for your company.
Article 5: Effective Date
The effective date is the day upon which your LLC will officially exist. This is usually the same day that your filing is accepted by the Department of State, but you are allowed to select a different day. You can choose a day five business days prior to the day the DOS receives your filing, or up to 90 days after your filing is received.
