Forming a business in Florida is not a difficult process. You need to pick a name not already in wide use in the state, determine whether you want your business to be a corporation or limited liability company (LLC), obtain a business license, and register with the state. To complete this process, you do have to meet several requirements, though, including the creation of articles of incorporation and filing for an Employer Identification Number (EIN) with the IRS so your business can be taxed, if your business is a corporation. If you fail to meet these requirements, your business will be operating illegally, which is why many individuals seeking to go into business prefer to let an attorney handle all the paperwork so they know everything has been done properly.
