Forming a Corporation in Ohio

Ohio Corporations

We form Ohio corporations daily. We are an Ohio corporation filing service. You can hire us to form your corporation in Ohio for $100 plus state filing fees.

An Ohio corporation is formed by filing articles of incorporation with the Ohio Secretary of State, Corporations Division.

You Have Options:

If you’d like to try to save some money, you can file for your own corporation with the tools provided in your online account. We include the Ohio articles of incorporation forms in your online Ohio registered agent account. You also get filing tips and resources on how to file. You get access to these tools immediately after you sign up for Ohio registered agent service. Keep in mind that starting January 1, 2024, you’ll need to complete a Beneficial Ownership Information report for the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) after filing with the state.


After you look around at the DIY option inside your online account; if it just seems like more trouble than it’s worth, you can easily add our filing services for the state filing fees plus $100. Either way, it will only take you a few minutes to add our filing service inside your online account, and as our clients, we provide you a usable Ohio business address in addition to a domain name, email address, website, SSL certificate, and Ohio phone service.

If you’re interested in registering a Trade Name (also known as a DBA) for your corporation, we can do that, too! Just add our Trade Name Service inside your online account, and we’ll register a DBA for your corporation for only $125 (plus state fees).
