Ohio Incorporation Information Goes Online

The database, which can be reached through www.state.oh.us/sos, include information for people interesting in incorporating a business in the state and data on the status of previous incorporations. Before moving online, the information was only accessible by phone, in person or through written requests.

"Providing Ohioans access to our business services databases in a searchable format is another step in our ongoing effort to streamline Ohio's incorporating process," Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell said in a statement. "Our goal is to maximize the use of current technology and make government move at the speed of business."

The information includes: whether a business is in good standing; the status of an approved filing; and secured loan transactions. Searches can be conducted by debtor name and other categories.
