Ohio Looks to Reduce State Business Filing Fee

Contact: Sante Ghetti |

The Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE) and Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) supported companion legislation, House Bill 3 (HB 3) and Senate Bill 26 (SB 26), that will reduce the business filing fee collected by the Office of the Secretary of State in Ohio by 21 percent. While reducing the business filing fee from $125 to $99 serves as a small step toward eliminating barriers for business – both large and small – it also sends a message about the importance of Ohio’s business community. The legislation also provides any Ohio-based company, in good standing with the state, with access to all features of the OhioMeansJobswebsite.
