Every successful business started with a vision. However, even the best business ideas will never come to fruition if you don’t comply with 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 simple matter, it is essential to have an experienced business attorney to 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 start to finish.
Choosing the Right Business Structure
While you may have heard of corporations, partnerships, or limited liability companies (LLCs), among other types of business entities, the meaning of these words can only be appreciated by an experienced business attorney. Each term reflects a different type of business structure with implications for your legal liability, tax burden, and ability to raise capital to start or expand your business. Therefore, long before you register your business, you will need to think carefully and carefully about what kind of business it will be.
Fortunately, you won’t have to make such an important decision on your own. Jurado & Associates not only handles the business registration process, but also makes sure that our clients understand the importance of the entity they choose for their business venture. As fellow business owners, we know the importance of these decisions as legal professionals and experts. We will work closely with you to understand your ideas, circumstances, and goals to best find the structure that fits your business and your dreams.
Do the Business Registry Right
The State of Florida requires that all businesses 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 apply to LLCs; other entities, such as corporations, do not even require formal registration.
These documents are not only the legal and structural basis of your business, they are also publicly available; therefore, you’ll want to make sure they’re done right the first time. For example, certain names cannot be used, especially if another entity already has them. You must select a trusted person or entity to act as your registered agent, responsible for receiving important business documentation, such as correspondence from the Florida Department of State and a claimant’s notification service.
Crucially, your business registration must also establish the officers and/or members of the company, among other critical functions. 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 an important decision, we will be ready to advise you accordingly. If the time comes to amend the articles that establish your business, we can handle that too, freeing up your valuable time to be better spent running your business.
