I provide chauffeurs to executives, my business is registered

This answer was rated:

I provide chauffeurs to executives, my business is registered in New York, I would like to provide chauffeurs to executives in Miami-Dade, palm beach and broward county, what forms must I fill out.

You can register your NY company with the Florida Department of State. See

You will also need to obtain a county and city local business tax receipt (formerly an occupational license) and/or zoning permit from the city clerk or county tax collector.

When you say I can register my company with the Florida Dept of State, what form exactly are you speaking of?

Is it a form for companies registered outside of the State of Florida that want to do business in Florida?

Do you have the form number?


And you mentioned "and or zoning permit from the city clerk or county tax collector". I'm contracting with people to drive clients', I will not have a physical location, shop or store, is a zoning permit necessary?




Here are the forms and instructions to register a foreign profit corporation to transact business in Florida: click here

If you are contracting out existing businesses to drive, you would not require a zoning permit. However, the business/person you are hiring should have a zoning permit.

That portion has been cleared up, however the city local business tax receipt, that you mentioned does that need to be filed for every county or would the driver i'm contracting with need to file that, and if i must file it, do you have the link to those forms as well, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach County?

The driver can file for the business tax receipt. The driver will need to obtain a business tax receipt in the county and the city where he is located.

I'm going to click accept in a few minutes. I just wanted to know, how much would you charge to review, adjust and correct a document that I was going to use to contract with independent drivers in the State of Florida? Or if that is something you're not interested in, let me know.
