FORMING A FLORIDA CORPORATION: EXPLANATORY NOTES
Forming a Florida corporation (or llc) explanatory notes: (the capitalized phrases below are the phrases which appear as hyperlinks on the web page which contains the special offer regarding Florida corporations and llcs)
WITHIN 24 HOURS: We will file the Articles of Incorporation (or Articles of Organization in the case of an llc) within 24 hours after you have (1) provided payment for our services and the fees we must pay out as a part of the process (charge cards are considered immediate payment, checks require clearing time) and (2) given your approval to the name to be used and the names and addresses of the parties to be listed in the articles. While the Secretary of State provides excellent service, we cannot guarantee that they will always acknowledge filing of the Articles within 24 hours. Generally speaking,however, we expect that they will provide such acknowledgment within this 24-hour period.
CHECKING YOUR NAME: The name checks we conduct for domain name purposes and on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office trademark search facility are exact name searches only. It is possible that there is a trademark in existence which is "confusingly similar" (see limitations of USPTO searches) to your name, and this possibility (while slim) cannot be eliminated by the searches we are making, or by the name check with the Secretary of State. In conducting these name checks, we are relying upon the information provided to us and cannot be responsible for errors in that information.
HOME STATE INCORPORATIONS...: "Home state incorporations" means corporations (or limited liability companies) where one or more out of the principal parties in the company is a resident of the state. It does not include situations where no participant in the company is a resident.
ACKNOWLEDGED FILING...: Generally speaking, we expect that the Secretary of State will acknowledge the filing of the articles within 24 hours. See "WITHIN 24 HOURS", above.
