Starting an LLC? What Address Should You Use for Your Online Business? (See UPDATE for more info)

UPDATE: I don’t think I made this clear in the video. You should NOT use a PO Box, even when it is a street address, as your registered agent address. You must make sure that the address you use or the company that will serve as your registered agent is properly licensed to accept service on your behalf. If you do not want to use your home address, you will need to use a separate service that is authorized to act as a registered agent in your state.

Today’s question comes from Florida:

“I am wanting to start my LLC as sole proprietor in FL. It will be an online business. I rent my home so I do not want to use this address for the business or RA (Registered Agent). Can I use a P.O. box requesting a street address with a suite # for both of my addresses? I am naming myself as my own Registered Agent. Is the street address P.O. box legal or do I have to get a virtual office? Thank you!!!”
