Section 620.9003, Florida Statutes 2008
620.9003 Annual report.--
(1) A limited liability partnership, and a foreign limited liability partnership authorized to transact business in this state, shall file an annual report in the office of the Secretary of State which contains:
(a) The name of the limited liability partnership and the state or other jurisdiction under whose laws the foreign limited liability partnership is formed;
(b) The current street address of the partnership's chief executive office and, if different, the current street address of its principal office in this state, if there is one;
(c) The partnership's Federal Employer Identification Number, if any, or, if none, whether one has been applied for; and
(d) The name and street address of the partnership's current agent for service of process, who must be an individual resident of this state or other person authorized to do business in this state.
(2) An annual report must be filed between January 1 and May 1 of each year following the calendar year in which a partnership files a statement of qualification or a foreign partnership becomes authorized to transact business in this state.
(3) The Secretary of State may administratively revoke the statement of qualification of a partnership that fails to file an annual report when due or to pay the required filing fee. The Secretary of State shall provide the partnership at least 60 days' written notice of intent to revoke the statement. The notice is effective 5 days after it is deposited in the United States mail addressed to the partnership at its chief executive office set forth in the last filed statement of qualification or annual report. The notice must specify the annual report that has not been filed, the fee that has not been paid, and the date on or after which the revocation will become effective. The revocation is not effective if the annual report is filed and the fee is paid before the effective date of the revocation.
(4) A revocation under subsection (3) affects only a partnership's status as a limited liability partnership and is not an event of dissolution of the partnership.
(5) A partnership whose statement of qualification has been administratively revoked may apply to the Secretary of State for reinstatement within 2 years after the effective date of the revocation. The application must state:
(a) The name of the partnership and the effective date of the revocation; and
(b) That the ground for revocation either did not exist or has been corrected.
(6) A reinstatement under subsection (5) relates back to and takes effect as of the effective date of the revocation, and the partnership's status as a limited liability partnership continues as if the revocation had never occurred.
