Division of Corporations: Update Your Contact Information
Now is a perfect time for registered agents to update their contact information with the Department of State’s Division of Corporations. The Division sends email reminders to the address provided to them from the last renewal of the Annual Report in early January for corporate filings. The email goes to the registered agent of the business entity.
If your email address has changed or you aren’t sure what’s on file, visit the Division's website. You may email the appropriate bureau with the correct email address for each entity for which you are the registered agent.
Now is the time for you or your client to update the email address for free if it has changed since the last notice. Help avoid the $400 late fee, which the Department is unable to waive, by sending the up-to-date email address of the registered agent who will help you and your client.
Reminder: License Renewal Process Has Changed
DBPR will open the online renewal process around Sept. 1, 2013. By submitting payment and renewing a license, licensees are affirming they have completed the necessary CPE. Therefore, licensees should not submit their payment before completing all hours necessary for renewal.
