Every successful business began with a vision. Yet even the best business ideas will never become a reality if you do not meet the multitude of legal requirements that apply to every business. First and foremost is registering your business, which must be done before anything else can come to fruition. While Business Registration may seem like a straightforward matter, it is critical to have an experienced Business Attorney guide you through the process and handle the complex technical details—fortunately Jurado & Associates, P.A. has a team of business experts ready to be by your side from the start to finish.
Choosing the Right Business Structure
While you have heard of corporations, partnerships, or limited liability companies (LLCs)—among other kinds of business entities—the significance of these words can only be appreciated by a knowledgeable Business Attorney. Each term reflects a distinct type of business structure with implications for your legal liability, tax burden, and the ability to raise capital to start or expand your business. So, well before you register your business, you will need to think hard and carefully about what sort of business it will be.
Fortunately, you will not have to make such a major decision on your own. Jurado & Associates not only handles the Business Registration process but makes sure our clients understand the significance of the entity they choose for their entrepreneurial venture. As fellow business owners, we know the importance of this decisions as both professionals and legal experts. We will work closely with you to understand your ideas, circumstances, and goals to better find the structure that suits your business and your dreams.
Getting Business Registration Done Right
The State of Florida requires all businesses to be registered with its Department of State. While this can be done online, the process is far from straightforward. Different entities require different filing documents—for example, Articles of Incorporation apply to corporations, while Articles of Organization are for LLCs; other entities, such as partnerships, do not even require formal registration.
These documents are not only the legal and structural foundation of your business, but they are publicly available—therefore, you will want to make sure they are done right the first time. For example, certain names cannot be used, especially if another entity already has them. You must select a trusted individual or entity to serve as the registered agent, responsible for receiving important paperwork for the business, such as correspondence from the Florida Department of State and service of process from a plaintiff.
Crucially, your Business Registration must also set forth the officers and/or members of the business, among other critical roles. While the titles may vary depending on the type of entity, the importance of choosing these positions is the same. If you need help making such a weighty decision, we will be on standby to advise you accordingly. If the time comes to amend the articles establishing your business, we can handle that as well, freeing up your precious time better spent running your enterprise.
