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.

Correct
Business Lawyer: BizLawyerNate, Attorney replied 6 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.

 

I will be happy to follow up with you if you have additional questions. In the meantime, please click ACCEPT so that I can get credit for answering your question. Of course, if you really liked what I could help you with, please consider a Bonus, too!

 

Thanks!

The link you sent for filing DBA online is incorrect...please advise
Business Lawyer: BizLawyerNate, Attorney replied 6 years ago

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

That does not work either...please advise

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.

You got it! Many thanks and have a happy 4th!

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

Business Lawyer: BizLawyerNate, Attorney replied 6 years ago
You would contact your county clerk. They can assist you in doing that.
Ask Your Own Business Law Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Can I do this online or do I have to go to their facility?
Business Lawyer: BizLawyerNate, Attorney replied 6 years ago

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

Business Lawyer: BizLawyerNate, Attorney replied 6 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.

Where is nearest to Boynton Beach a county clerk office?
Business Lawyer: BizLawyerNate, Attorney replied 6 years ago
The address is at the Tax Collector link. That's where you'd have to go - there will only be one location.
Ask Your Own Business Law Question
Customer reply replied 6 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?

Business Lawyer: BizLawyerNate, Attorney replied 6 years ago
Yes on all counts, and yes, you can be the registered agent.

Many thanks!

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

Business Lawyer: BizLawyerNate, Attorney replied 6 years ago

Nah. Hard work could get me hurt.
