Florida Fictitious Name Publishing Requirements
Per Florida Statute 865.09, Effective July 1, 2009, prior to registering a fictitious name for your business (also known a dba) you must publish a notice of intention in one newspaper in the county where your business’s principal office is located. This must be completed before filing the fictitious name with the Florida Division of Corporations (Sunbiz).
If this legal notice is NOT published then you are NOT in compliance with the State of Florida Statute.
Any person who fails to comply with the statute commits a second degree misdemeanor, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083. By having us publish your fictitious name this can be avoided.
Please complete the Florida Fictitious Name Publishing form and we will publish your fictitious name so that you can be in compliance with the State of Florida Statute.
