Thank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer.

 

Just to be clear - you want the Nevada LLC (not yourself personally) to do business in Florida under a different name.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Correct
Expert:  BizLawyerNate replied 3 years ago.

You must first register your Nevada LLC to do business in Florida. That process is easy and is described here.

 

Once that is complete, you can register a fictitious name (your DBA). This can be done online.

 

Of course, you will also need to get a local business license as well.

The link you sent for filing DBA online is incorrect...please advise
Expert:  BizLawyerNate replied 3 years ago.

Must have missed something in the paste. Here is the correct link

 

https://efile.sunbiz.org/ficregintro.html

 

Sorry about that.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Thanks I will try that...
Expert:  BizLawyerNate replied 3 years ago.

https://efile.sunbiz.org/ficregintro.html

 

Try this. I see what happened before.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
That does not work either...please advise
Expert:  BizLawyerNate replied 3 years ago.

https://efile.sunbiz.org/ficregintro.html

 

Copy and paste it in your browser. The problem is that it is a secure link (https v. http). When I was making it a link, it was adding an additional "http" so it messed up.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
You got it! Many thanks and have a happy 4th!
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Lastly, how do I obtain a "local business license?"

Expert:  BizLawyerNate replied 3 years ago.
You would contact your county clerk. They can assist you in doing that.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Can I do this online or do I have to go to their facility?
Expert:  BizLawyerNate replied 3 years ago.

It depends on the county. Tell me the county and I will see for you.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Palm Beach
Expert:  BizLawyerNate replied 3 years ago.
They changed things a little. You have to set up a local business tax account here with the Tax Collector. I do not see a way to do it online.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Where is nearest to Boynton Beach a county clerk office?
Expert:  BizLawyerNate replied 3 years ago.
The address is at the Tax Collector link. That's where you'd have to go - there will only be one location.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

So, just to be sure I understand:

1) Pay filing fee $100, complete application - WAIT FOR THEIR REPLY YES/NO

2) Designation of Registered Agent $25 - CAN I BE MY OWN AGENT?

3) Certified Copy (optional) $30

4) Certificate of Status (opional) $5

Then go online & register fictous name (DBA).

Finally go to Clerk and apply for local business license.

Is this correct?

Expert:  BizLawyerNate replied 3 years ago.
Yes on all counts, and yes, you can be the registered agent.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Many thanks!

Don't work too hard...you'll probably be hearing from me a lot in the next few months!

Expert:  BizLawyerNate replied 3 years ago.

Nah. Hard work could get me hurt.
