For next steps, here are a few options:

  • Option A: Contact the Florida Secretary of State to update your registered agent status from Nearside to yourself. Please note that you must have a valid physical mailing address to act as your own registered agent.
  • Option B: If you prefer to have your LLC managed by a trusted party, take a look at Corpnet, one of the industry’s most trusted document filing services. Incfile, Swyft Filings, and Zen Business also offer comparable services.
