In Florida at present there really are no burdensome requirements to set up a business other than having a credit card and a physical address for a registered agent. For example, there are no citizenship requirements or bonds or a test to pass, which would seem to promote the open development of business in the State.
There are three types of business entities in Florida. They are the corporation, which is designated by the letters “Inc.”, the limited liability company, designated by the letters “LLC”, and the partnership with its various permutations that can be represented by letters such as “L.P.” for limited partnership, “L.L.L.P.” for limited liability limited partnership, etc. The “S Corp” is not a legal business entity, but is merely a tax election that a business owner makes with its accountant.
