CORONAVIRUS SMALL BUSINESS UPDATE: FLORIDA EDITION
As our commitment to our clients and followers, for the last four weeks we have been providing updates on actions taken by the Federal Government to help small business and individuals. Today, we focus on Florida and Miami-Dade County. Here are some of the initiatives that may be helpful to your small business:
Annual Report- The deadline for filing your corporation’s or LLC’s annual report with the Division of Corporations (Sunbiz.org) has been extended to June 30.
Sales Tax Filing- The filing and payment of Sales and Use Tax (along with Tourist Development Tax, Solid Waste Fees and Prepared Wireless E911 fees) has been extended to April 30 for businesses adversely affected by Covid-19. Adversely affected means your business is closed, it collected less than 75% of sales tax in March 2020 compared to March 2019, the business was established after March 2019, or the business files quarterly.
Documentary Stamp- Documentary stamps have been waived for loans your business receives pursuant to the CARES Act (the SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and the Payroll Protection Program (PPP) :oan).
Building Permits- Under Florida law, when a state of emergency for a natural disaster is issued, building permits are tolled and extended for the period of state of emergency and for an additional six months after the emergency is terminated.
If you have any questions about the above or any of the relief programs provided in the CARES Act, such as, the EIDL or PPP, please contact us at 305-222-7282 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
