What are the options for relocating my business to Florida?
If you’re considering relocating your business to Florida, there are several options to consider. Here are the main ones:
1. Operate as a foreign entity: If your business is currently established outside of Florida, you can still trade in the state by registering your company as a foreign entity. This process involves completing the necessary paperwork, but it is usually quick and straightforward.
2. Domesticate the business: If you’ve decided that Florida is the ideal location for your business, you can move your headquarters to the state. To do this, you’ll need to complete three procedures. First, obtain a certificate of good standing from the state where you currently operate. Then, file a certificate of domestication and Articles of Incorporation with the Florida Division of Corporations. Finally, complete the legal process of dissolving your company in the state you’re moving from.
3. Form a new company: In some cases, it may be simpler to dissolve your old company and form a new one in Florida. This approach can free you from any debt or problems associated with the previous company and allow you to start fresh in the new location.
