Reports as low as $49 with our Total Compliance Package

Annual reports are designed to allow a business entity to make changes to pertinent information such as the names and addresses of the officers, the registered agent details or changing of the principal address. It is important to note that the annual report does not allow you to change the name of your business in Florida. To make that change, business entities must choose the appropriate amendment form for submission. In the state of Florida, business entities submit annual reports to the Florida Department of State, Division of Corporations.

As defined by the Florida Department of State, filing of annual reports is required each year, regardless if there are changes to the business. Please be aware that the annual report is not a financial statement, but instead an accurate picture of how the administrative side of the business looks.

How to File Your Florida Division of Corporations Annual Report

Anyone with authority in the business entity may file the annual registration. As mentioned above, the state of Florida requires online submission of all annual reports. To do so, visit the Division of Corporations website where a button is available to click.

It is the policy of the State of Florida that any information submitted on an annual report will be public record and made available on the Division’s website.

All annual registrations in Florida require the following information:

  • Document number (6 or 12 digits) assigned to the entity when initially filed or registered with the Division of Corporations
  • Official / legal name of the business on record
  • Federal Employee ID Number (9 digits), assigned by the IRS for federal tax identification purposes (do not enter a social security number here)
  • Principal Business Address
  • Name, address and signature of Registered Agent (In Florida, the business entity cannot serve as its’ own RA, although an individual or principal associated with the business may be in that role. An authorized company like DoMyLLC may also be assigned as the RA)
    • To sign electronically, the RA must type their own name into the signature block.
      Florida law states that typing someone’s name without his or her permission constitutes a forgery.
  • Names and addresses of principals where appropriate (officers, directors, managers, authorized representatives, general partners)
    • At least one principal name and address is required.
    • If the entity is an LP or LLP, the annual report cannot be used to change the general partners’ information; to do so, a Certificate of Amendment must be filed.
  • Valid email address. This is necessary as the filing confirmation, certificate and future communications will come to this email address.
