A: The general and applicable rule is as follows: The State of Florida Administratively Dissolved Businesses will be designated with an “INACT/UA” code and will then be held for a term/time period of one (1) year from the date of dissolution or revocation. Any names that are listed by the Florida Dept. of State Divisions of Corporations with the code “INACTIVE/UA” will be held for a stipulated period of time (1 year) in order to ensure that the business entity is able to reactivate its name via filing in the event that they decide to reinstate it in the allotted period. Note, for your purposes, the listed code of “INACTIVE/UA” status will be changed to “INACTIVE” or “INACT” once the name becomes available for others to use, once you see the status change to "Inactive" is when you can submit and apply for the name for use with the Florida Dept. of State offices.
