New business filings in Ohio again hit new high

January 20, 2014

The Ohio secretary of state’s office recorded 89,735 filings to do business in Ohio last year, up from 88,068 filings in 2012, the office announced last week.

This marks the fourth year in a row in which the number of new-business filings exceeded that of the previous year.

“We have cut processing times, and with our new online system, in many cases you can start a business 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted said in a statement.
