What is a Florida PLLC?A Florida PLLC is a limited liability company (LLC) formed specifically by people who will provide Florida licensed professional services. LLCs in general are businesses registered with the state that consist of one or more people—called LLC members—who own the business. Like other LLCs, PLLCs protect their individual members from people with claims for many (but not all) types of financial debts or personal injuries. What is a Professional Service? Under Florida’s PLLC law, a professional service is any type of personal service to the public which requires the provider to obtain a license or other legal authorization before providing the service. As specific examples, the law lists services provided by: certified public accountants, public accountants, chiropractic physicians, dentists, osteopathic physicians, physicians and surgeons, doctors of medicine, doctors of dentistry, podiatric physicians, chiropodists, architects, veterinarians, attorneys at law, and life insurance agents. Anyone who is licensed to practice one of these professions in Florida can form a Florida PLLC. In addition, Florida’s PLLC law states that the categories of professional services are not limited to those on the foregoing list. If you’re unsure whether members of your licensed or authorized profession are allowed to form a PLLC in Florida, check with a local business attorney.
A Professional Limited Liability Company (which is formed under both Chapter 605 and Chapter 621, F.S.) must enter a single specific professional purpose. Example: the practice of law, accounting services, practicing medicine, etc. Non-professional companies are not required to list a purpose, but may do so.
What is a Certificate of Status? A certificate of status certifies the status and existence of the LLC and verifies the LLC has paid all fees due to the State of Florida through a certain date.
