A DBA is a name other than the legal name of a sole proprietor or a business entity, and is also called a fictitious name.  In the state of Florida if a sole proprietor or a business entity conducts business under any name other than the legal, the sole proprietor must register a DBA. The intention to register a DBA must be advertised at least once in a newspaper in the county where the business has its principal location.

A limited liability Corporation (LLC) is the most popular business structure for good reasons.  The LLC, like a regular corporation, provides business owners protection for their personal assets against claims on the business, but still allows the business the flexibility of operating like a partnership or a sole proprietorship.  The LLC is suitable for many types of businesses and has fewer restrictions than many other business structures.  The LLC can have a single member or an infinite number of members.  Members can include individuals, corporations, other LLCs, and foreign entities. 

An S corporation is a corporation or an LLC which has elected to be taxed under subchapter S of chapter 1 in the Internal Revenue Code. This election classifies the business as an S corporation and allows it to forego paying federal income tax. The S corporation is a pass through entity that divides its profits or losses among the stockholders who will in turn report those income or losses to the federal government and pay the appropriate taxes based on their individual income. This election essentially prevents double taxation. A corporation must file form 2553 to be an S corporation.  If the business is an LLC, it must first file form 8832 to be classified as a corporation.

A C corporation is a for profit corporation, which can have an unlimited number of owners, and has no restrictions on who can be a shareholder.  Owners of a C corporation benefit from liability protection; they cannot be held accountable for the liabilities of the corporation.  The C corporation is the ideal business structure for raising capital and is therefore most popular among large corporations; it is subject to double taxation and must file a state income tax return. 

A non-profit organization [designated as a 501 (C) (3)] is an organization such as a charity, trade union, or public arts organization. A non-profit does not distribute surplus funds to owners or shareholders, but instead uses these funds to pursue goals in keeping with the purpose of its formation. Examples of non-profit purposes include committing capital to the construction of a museum, providing housing for lower income families, or providing access to medical supplies and food to the people of an area devastated by a natural disaster. Creating a Florida non-profit is a two-step process. The first step is to register a Florida non- profit corporation with at least 3 directors. The second step is to apply for IRS tax exemption by filing form 1023.
