Objective:

  • To change a Florida LLC’s registered agent and/or their registered office.

Additional Information:

Florida law requires every business in the state, including limited liability companies to have a registered agent. This is a business or an individual — sometimes even the business owner themself — who’s responsible for receiving services of process and other important legal documents on behalf of the LLC. They play an essential role in making sure that litigation is responded to in a timely manner.

  6. Next to item (b) is where you will place the New Registered Agent and Registered Agent Office Address information.

  8. Once completed, enclose a check for the Filing Fee. The filing fee is $25.00, or $55.00 should you wish to order a Certified Copy.

Pro Tip: Do you want a certificate of status? A certificate of status is an official document from the State of Florida confirming that your business has filed its annual report. It requires an additional $5.00 fee. However, a certificate of status is not required by Florida law.
