INITIAL FORMATION OF BUSINESS ENTITIES

        We are especially proficient in the area of initial formation of business entities and we try to make it an educational experience for our clients.  We offer the most comprehensive services available locally, which include:

1.  At our initial office conference (typically one hour plus) we will gather information and explain all of the details. We will be prepared to discuss with you the type of entity that would be most appropriate for your business.

2.  We will research your potential name choices to look for businesses with conflicting names.

3.  We will draft your Articles of Incorporation or your Articles of Organization to fit your specific needs and we will file the Articles with the Florida Secretary of State.

4.  We will draft your Bylaws or your Operating Agreement (as appropriate) to fit your specific needs.

5.  We will procure a corporate seal, if necessary.

6.  We have the ability to print our own Stock Certificates without relying on outside sources.

7.  We will procure a Federal Employer Identification Number from the Internal Revenue Service for your new company.

8.  We will procure a Florida Sales Tax Number from the Florida Department of Revenue for your new company, if needed.

9.  We will register your new company with the Florida Reemployment System.

10.  If you decide to become a corporation, we will discuss with you and your accountant the pros and cons of being an “S” Corporation or a “C” Corporation.  If appropriate, we will file your “S” Corporation Election with the Internal Revenue Service.

11.  If you decide to become a limited liability company, we will file your Entity Classification Election with the Internal Revenue Service.

12.  If you are in a construction related area of business, and you are required to file Workers Compensation Exemptions, we will include those at no extra charge.

13.  If you decide to operate your business under a name other than your registered entity’s name, we can advise you and we will file the appropriate Fictitious Name Filing and the publication of the required notice.

14.  At the conclusion of the process we will have your “organizational meeting” where: (1) the Directors/Officers or Managers or Managing Partners are elected, and (2) the Articles, and Bylaws or Operating Agreement are reviewed, explained and signed, and (3) the evidence of ownership (stock certificates, member ledger) are reviewed, explained and signed, and (4) any and all of the above mentioned governmental forms are reviewed, explained and signed. Typically, all of this will take from one (1) to one and a half (1 ½) hours.

               Remember, we try to make this an educational experience for you.
                  We want you and your new business to get off to a great start.
