Are the names of members and managers of a Florida LLC public record?
When a Florida LLC is formed, the Articles of Organization must contain the name and signature of either a manager or a managing member. The information supplied in the Articles of Organization is public record and available over the internet. Some companies use a Delaware LLC to serve as manager of the Florida LLC to avoid listing an individual manager’s name. The Delaware LLC does not require listing a manager or member.
Additionally, the names and addresses of managers are required to be filed in the annual report a Florida LLC is required to file with the Secretary of State. The information in this annual report is public record.
