The Florida Division of Corporations has a section on their website https://dos.myflorida.com/sunbiz/about-us/consumer-notices/fic-name-renewal-notices/ about companies that send renewal notices in the mail for fictitious name renewals and charging $125. This is not a scam, however, it is very expensive and something that you can do yourself for only $50. There is a “reply by” date which is much earlier than the actual renewal due date.

If you have a fictitious name, the renewal fee paid to the Florida Department of State is $50. This renewal is a simple process and only takes a couple of minutes online to do. If you don’t Internet and would like our help, give us a call at 941-706-2336 and we will do it for $20 plus the state fee of $50. Much less expensive than $125…
Have a wonderful week!
