How to Form an LLC in Florida

To start an LLC in Florida, you must file a document called the Florida LLC Article of Organization with the Florida Division of Corporations. The articles of organization cost $125 to file with the Division of Corporations. Once the Division of Corporations records your filing, you’ve technically formed your Florida LLC. However, to fully launch your LLC, you’ll need to complete the following steps:

  1. File a document called Florida LLC Articles of Organization
  2. Pay the Florida Division of Corporations $125 to file the articles
  3. Wait 1 to 2 days and you’ll get filed articles back showing your LLC is formed
  4. Get a Federal Tax ID Number (FEIN/EIN) for the LLC
  5. Create a Florida LLC Operating Agreement
  6. Take these documents to a bank to open a business bank account
