How to Change Your Business Address in Florida

Q: I am looking to change the office location/address on my files. I used to work at the address listed on my EIN documentation, but I now work at a different location and am wondering how to change this.

Thank you to Alexis Burn, M.A. RMFI, owner of Healing Systems Counseling, LLC in Florida, for that great question! You might need to change your business’s principal address if you move or just want to change where you receive mail. When changing your principal address in Florida, you may need to file an amendment of your Florida Articles of Organization or Articles of Incorporation, and you will also need to update your address with the IRS. We’ll tell you everything you need to know.

What is a principal office address in Florida?

Your principal office address is your business’s primary address, which you put on your articles of organization (for Florida LLCs) or articles of incorporation (for Florida corporations). In Florida, this address needs to be a physical street address, not a P.O. box. This address goes on the public record. You are also asked to include a mailing address in your articles, which can be the same or different from your principal address. This is the address where you’ll receive regular mail—as opposed to legal notices, which will be sent to your registered agent.

If you are worried about sharing your address on the public record, you might consider hiring a professional registered agent service that will put their business address as your principal address on public documents wherever possible. This can also help you avoid having to deal with junk mail.
