Selecting the Ohio Corporation or LLC Name
The name you choose will be identifying your corporation or LLC as a unique entity and the name will not be accepted if it is likely to mislead the public or if it too closely resembles the name of another corporation or LLC formed in Ohio.
Ohio requires that you do not use any type of punctuation marks in the name selection such as dashes, periods, underscores, asterisks or commas. It is considered by some to be advantageous to try to name your corporation or LLC so that it identifies with the goods or services you provide, but this is not required by the state of Ohio.
Selecting a Board of Directors
LLC’s within Ohio are required to file taxes as either a corporation or a partnership dependent on the election made on the SS-4. Ohio does not maintain an individual income tax so corporations with employees are expected to withhold. Ohio also requires the collection of sales and use tax and the general rate is 6%, but there is a discretionary amount imposed by the different counties.
