Ohio Foreign LLC Registration

Ohio Certificate of Authority

If you run an LLC based outside of Ohio and you want to operate in Ohio, you will register your LLC as an Ohio foreign LLC. Once your paperwork is filed, the state returns a filed certificate of authority from the Corporations Division of the Ohio Secretary of State.

As your registered agent, we can register your out of state LLC in Ohio for $100 plus the state filing fee.

OR, you can do it yourself, and just hire us as your registered agent in Ohio. All foreign LLCs in Ohio will require a registered agent. You can have this service for $49 a year.

Once you sign up for our Ohio registered agent service, you will be logged into your online account where you’ll find the foreign Ohio LLC form you file with the Corporations Division of the Ohio Secretary of State.

After taking a look at the resources we include in your online account, if you do not want to actually do the filing yourself, you can find and click on the add services tab in your online account, and have us do the filing for you for the state filing fees plus $100. As part of that service, we will also obtain the proper documents from the home state of your LLC organization that are needed to register you correctly in Ohio.
