Why being an incorporator on sunbiz doesn’t give you ownership rights

Just because you’re listed on a document as an incorporator, or on Sunbiz and Florida as an incorporator, that doesn’t give you any ownership rights, you can be listed as president, vice president, secretary treasurer, those are officer positions in a company. It doesn’t mean that you’re a shareholder, you have to be very careful, because I’ve seen people get tricked into believing they had ownership, but the shareholders agreement indicated otherwise. So again, do not rely on the information on sunbiz. Make sure you have your corporate documents in place which verify your ownership percentage in your company.
