To maintain your workers' compensation exemption, the corporation or limited liability company (LLC) listed on your exemption must remain in an active status with the Florida Division of Corporations.
If the Florida Division of Corporations has not reinstated the corporation or LLC listed on your workers' compensation exemption by April 1, 2007, the Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation will initiate proceedings to REVOKE YOUR WORKERS’ COMPENSATION EXEMPTION.
For information on reinstating a corporation or LLC, please visit the Florida Division of Corporations’ website at www.sunbiz.org, click on “Electronic Filing”, and then click on “Reinstatement Filing”; or for corporations call (850) 245-6059 and for LLCs call (850) 245-6051
If your workers’ compensation exemption is revoked, you will no longer be exempt from the provisions of Chapter 440, Florida Statutes; and, in order to obtain an exemption in the future, you must file a new workers’ compensation exemption application which must meet all the legal requirements for the issuance of a workers’ compensation exemption.
There are different types of contractor licensing available.
Prior to receiving a license (local specialty or state registered) you must take a Prometric examination. If you have received a license in another county in Florida check with licensing staff to determine if reciprocity is accepted from that jurisdiction.
