Do I need to have a registered agent when forming a Florida corporation?

The State of Florida Division of Corporations requires that all Florida State corporations designate a registered agent for service of process. Registered agents receive service of process, government notices and other official documents on behalf of the corporation.

In most cases, anyone who has a street address (this cannot be a P.O. Box address) within Florida may act as a registered agent for Florida State corporations.

To learn more about registered agents you can visit Registered Agent Listings. In particular they have a nice list of registered agent FAQs as well as a nice selection of registered agents in Florida.
