Registering LLCs in Florida
While certain States like Wyoming and New Mexico allow you to register anonymous LLCs, Florida does not.
Instead, anyone looking to obtain anonymity with a Florida LLC has to instead register another LLC first and form what is called a “Double LLC”.
This “Double LLC” strategy requires the business owner to register a Wyoming LLC first, and then form a Florida LLC second with the Wyoming LLC as the single member.
In most cases, this is a complicated and unnecessary step for non-residents interested in registering in the United States. Instead, if they are interested in anonymity, they should simply register a Wyoming LLC or New Mexico LLC on its own.
Of course, if you are required to register an LLC in Florida for specific (e.g. legal or contractual reasons), you may want to consider this strategy in order to protect your identity.

Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some of the most common questions that we receive from people looking to register a US LLC and open a business bank account in the US. If you have further questions you would like answered, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us directly.
Should I Register My Limited Liability Company in Florida?
Florida is one of the options that non-residents consider when registering a limited liability company in the United States. That said, it is not the most popular option. In most cases, non-residents would typically choose to register LLCs in Wyoming, Nevada, New Mexico, and Delaware before registering in Florida.
What Other States Should I Consider Registering My LLC In?
Other States that you may want to consider in addition to Florida when registering a US LLC include Wyoming, Nevada, New Mexico, and Delaware. Of course, there are other options to consider as well, however for non-resident business owners, these are the most popular options.
Do I Need Proof of a Business Address in Florida?
When applying to open a bank account in Florida, it is not necessarily required to have a business address in Florida. However, it can be helpful when it comes to account opening. That said, having an address in the same state where you want to open accounts is not usually a requirement.
Is an Anonymous Florida LLC Right for Me?
An anonymous LLC simply refers to information about the business owner not being made available to the general public. However, when registering a Florida LLC, information about the member(s) is publicly available. With this in mind, a second LLC in an anonymous LLC State must be formed first. As a result, most business owners instead decide to register in Wyoming or New Mexico instead.
