Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has announced that 10,033 new entities filed to do business in Ohio during January 2017. This is an increase of 1,409 entities when compared to January 2016.
This makes only the third time that the number of new business filings received in a single month has surpassed 10,000 filings.
January’s record comes on the heels of Secretary Husted’s announcement that 2016 was the seventh consecutive year the state has seen a record number of new entities filing to do business in Ohio.
In 2016, 105,009 new businesses registered with the Secretary of State’s office, surpassing the previous record of 97,746 new entities.
Secretary Husted says that a focal point of his administration has been to make the process of starting and maintaining a new business in Ohio simpler and more cost-effective for entrepreneurs.
