How to look up your Florida company status on


As corporate attorneys, we hear all kinds of questions regarding LLC’s, Corporations, and other types of entities. A frequent question we get comes from other members of said company, asking for basic publicly available information. Further, whenever doing business with a company in Florida, you should verify that they are registered on Sunbiz. This post is created to share how to research the status of a Florida company online in this, the digital age.

Before we begin, you’ll want to have one or all of the following to aid in your search:

  • Company Name
  • Registered Agent
  • Owner / Manager Name
  • Street Address
  • Fictitious Business Name

5. Your landing page header should be “DETAIL BY ENTITY NAME”.

6. The company page you searched for is essentially the meat and potatoes of that company.
