Three out of four Ohio businesses are now started using Ohio Business Central

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted recently announced 9,569 new entities filed to do business in Ohio during April 2017, an increase of 263 when compared to the same month in 2016.  The April filings make it the best month for new business filings in Ohio history.

So far, 42,633 new entities have filed to do business in Ohio in 2017. Due to the use of Ohio Business Central, the online business filing site founded by Secretary Husted in 2013, this number continues to climb. Already in 2017, three out of every four entities founded were started online. From the time Ohio Business Central was launched until the end of April 2017, the Secretary of State’s Office has processed over 240,000 online filings.
