As corporate attorneys, we hear all kinds of questions regarding LLC’s, Corporations, and other types of entities. However, a frequent question we get comes from other members of said company, asking for basic publicly available information. We are happy to help our clients but we thought we’d share how to research the status of your 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 Name
- Owner / Manager Name
Once you’ve got them, then you can access your Florida company details through Sunbiz.org.
At first, you’ll find yourself consumed by a myriad of options but for the sake of this blog, we’ll focus on the task at hand.
- Begin by hovering over the Search Records tab.
- Once redirected, you’ll find multiple options – choose the best fit for you.
- The search will render variations of whatever keywords you provided but from our experience, your answer is usually within the first few. Click on the Company, Registered Agent, or Owner / Manager name that fits and you’ll be redirected to the data of that entity.
- Your landing page header should be “DETAIL BY ENTITY NAME”.
- The company page you searched for is essentially the meat and potatoes of that company. Here you’ll find information such as the Electronic Identification Number (EIN), the registered address(s), entity information regarding registered members and agents, and finally, at the very bottom, you’ll find the documents that have been file d for that company currently.
Voilá! You’ve successfully researched a Florida entity. As an example of what you should be seeing, we offer our own EPGD Business Law entity information.
