Seller’s Permit Vs. Resale Certificate in Florida
A Florida wholesale license/seller’s permit should not be confused with what is known as a resale certificate. Although they have similar names, they are in fact quite different. A Florida resale certificate (officially called a Florida Annual Resale Certificate for Sales Tax) allows a business to purchase goods free of tax so long as these items are to be resold later. This certificate is given by the buyer to the seller at the time of the initial transaction.
