Register an LLC in Ohio

Posted by derekbobo on April 25, 2009

I put off this task for quite sometime because I was a bit overwhelmed by it. I thought “this is something I don’t want to screw up, it’s worth paying an attorney who knows what they are doing.” It turns out it’s quite an easy task. First off you’ll want to make sure the name you want to register is available. You can do that online here.

Once you have the name figured out you can download the necessary forms here.

You’ll basically just need to fill out your contact information and appoint someone who can sign official documents for the business.

Next you need to write a $125 check to the Secretary of State and mail it in. The process takes about a week or so to complete.

While you’re waiting to get your reciept from the Secretary of State you can setup a business bank account because you’ll want to keep all business transactions separate from personal transactions.

DISCLAIMER: This in no way constitutes as legal advice and I would still encourage you to consult legal and financial advice whereever you have questions. If you goof something up it’s not on me 🙂
