Some of the largest businesses have headquarters in Florida today — including 17 Fortune 500 companies.
Florida’s robust infrastructure, diverse talent pool, pro-business climate, competitive cost of doing business and streamlined regulatory environment makes it one of the best places for corporate headquarters in the United States. Major international and domestic organizations spanning every industry — from banking to food markets to aerospace and defense — already have headquarters based in the state, and your business will benefit from this established network.
With more than 10 million workers statewide — the third-largest civilian labor force in the U.S. in 2019, Florida’s skilled workers are ready to take your business to the next level. Florida continues to add to its robust and diverse workforce through its world-class educational institutions, which are among the nation’s top performers of R&D and commercialization of technologies.
With a low corporate tax rate of 5.5% and the state sales tax rate of 6%, Florida ranks low compared to other states in the nation in terms of the tax burden placed on its residents and businesses. Plus, the 0% personal income tax is a compelling incentive for business owners looking to attract out-of-state job hunters.
Florida offers world-class business amenities and infrastructure, so your people, products and ideas can move quickly and efficiently. In Florida, your headquarters will have access to more than 100 airports, 15 deep-water ports within 90 miles of any business, over 122,000 miles of highway and state-of-the-art connectivity supported by 61,000+ total fiber miles, 47,000+ fiber-connected buildings and 275 data center locations.
