state of Florida dose not require state licensing for tile setter. You are required to either be a corporation or LLC. Carry a minimun of 300,000 in liability insuranace and workmans comp. If you do not have employees you can work with a workmans comp excemption. Go to sunbiz.org for all the info. Good luck.

the law was changed in January of this year. Up until then I was a sole proprietor but had to register as an LLC or corporation to function as a construction contractor. You can run a retail business as a sole proprietor but not a contracting business.

You are already on the right path. You want to do it the RIGHT/LEGAL way. While your at it get bonded. It is cheap and customers see it as a good thing.
