Business Extension on Filing Annual Report in Florida

Small businesses are required to file an annual report every year with the Florida Secretary of State. The form updates or confirms the Florida Department of State, Division of Corporations’ records.

Furthermore, it is required, whether or not you need to make changes. Finally, note that the data displayed on the entity’s annual report is the most current data on file with the Division of Corporations.
