Business filings up in 2012

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Although they are not a guarantee of future gains in employment or even that a business will begin operating, the number of business filings with the office of the Ohio Secretary of State increased for the third straight year in 2012.

Secretary Jon Husted’s office announced yesterday that 88,068 new entities filed to do business in Ohio in 2012, a 6.66 percent increase over 2011, when 82,601 new entities filed with the office.

“Ohio is heading in the right direction. We should build upon these successes and continue to make our state the preferred location for entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and create jobs,” Secretary Husted said.

New business filings are forms filed Husted’s office declaring the formation of a business entity but do not guarantee companies will begin operations, be profitable or create jobs, Husted’s office said.

The number of new filings for December was nearly 80 percent higher than the same month the year before.
