I just got my LLC registration back and it says to file a report every year or I will be fined $400, What is this report? and are there any other LLC's out there? Can you tell me what I should be doing differently than a sole proprietor? I already use a separate bank account for my business and I am waiting on a certified copy of my articles of organization, to open an account under the new name. That's all I know about LLC, except everyone says this is the route I should take!

Easy as pie in Fla. Ralph. It's all online. Just answer the questions and give them a cc#. It's in sunbiz.org

The bank could care less. It actually helps you though with your personal liabilities. It also helps me a lot with fed income taxes. My average effective tax rate is always lower than 14 percent.

How long did you're Florida llc take. NJ was a pita. Used a document company which i thought was easier. Need mine done asap. Just having Llc or Inc helps sales besides personal protection.

You can do it online. Takes 5 minutes. I didn't check the box for a certified copy, which they said you need for a bank account. So I had to send a self addressed stamped envelope and $35. If I had just check the box I would have been on the system in 2 days. And they would have sent me my certified copy in a week. Turns out I didn't even need the certified copy. To answer your question. You can do it online and they send you an email 2-3 business days later. Then you can go back online and find your info, print it and you are good to go.

Busy as hell down here Mike! It seems every HOA in Tampa Bay sent out nastygrams. I can't get no work done because I am answering the phone every two minutes(and that's no exaggeration)

Gosh, Wish I had that problem here in Maryland! Some of the HOAs are great however, Most are not very stringent.

Yeah buddy... Annual report = renewal fee essentially. It couldnt be easier on Sunbiz. $150

Watch out for a document in the mail that says you have to do "one more step". It looks like an official letter with the logo and has a Tallahassee address. Complete scam

Let me know if you have any questions, I have had many an LLC in my day. If you use an accountant, ask him/her about a "S-Corp" designation for your LLC. I believe this allows for better tax maneuverability but unclear about benefits. Something my accountant setup for me.

Got that letter. Wanted $69 for something you can get for $5 on sunbiz. Investigated and saw that it was a scam.
