An alternate name adopted for use in this state shall be cross-referenced to the actual name of the foreign limited liability company in the records of the department. If the actual name of the foreign limited liability company subsequently becomes available in this state or the foreign limited liability company chooses to change its alternate name, a copy of the record approving the change by its members, managers, or other persons having the authority to do so, and executed as required pursuant to s. 605.0203, shall be delivered to the department for filing.
(2) A foreign limited liability company that adopts an alternate name under subsection (1) and obtains a certificate of authority with the alternate name need not comply with s. 865.09.
(3) After obtaining a certificate of authority with an alternate name, a foreign limited liability company shall transact business in this state under the alternate name unless the company is authorized under s. 865.09 to transact business in this state under another name.
(4) If a foreign limited liability company authorized to transact business in this state changes its name to one that does not comply with s. 605.0112, it may not thereafter transact business in this state until it complies with subsection (1) and obtains an amended certificate of authority pursuant to s. 605.0907.
