How To File An Amendment For An Ohio LLC

Step By Step Guide To Ohio LLC Amendments

How to file an Ohio LLC Amendment:

To make amendments to your limited liability company in Ohio, you must provide the completed Domestic Limited Liability Company Certificate of Amendment or Restatement form (543a) to the Secretary of State by mail or in person.

Can you re-state the initial articles instead of filing an amendment?

Yes. If you wish to re-state your initial articles you use the same form, just check a different box.

Are there any specifics you can or can’t include with an Ohio LLC amendment?

You can file an amendment to change the name of your LLC, or its’ period of existence. If any other information that is set forth in the original articles of organization changes, is discovered to be materially false or inaccurate – a certificate of amendment would need to be filed within 30 days.

An update to your statutory agent would NOT be filed as an amendment. Instead, you would use the Statutory Agent Update form.

How much does an Ohio Limited Liability Company amendment cost?

To amend your LLC in Ohio, there is a $50.00 filing fee.

Expedited service within 2 business days is available for a $100.00 fee.

How long does it take the state to process an Ohio Limited Liability Company amendment?

Typical Processing: Allow 4-6 business days, plus additional time for return mailing.
Fax Processing: 4-6 business days, plus extra time for return mailing. To submit filings by fax, you must have a prepayment account with the Ohio Secretary of State. Of course, if we’re your statutory agent, we can take care of it for you.
In-Person Processing: 4-6 business days, plus additional time for return mailing.
Expedited Processing:
Level 1 (by mail or walk-in): within 2 business days for $100.00

Once processed, you will be able to print the filed copy of your LLC or corporation amendment directly from their website. A copy of your certificate will be mailed as well.

How will the LLC amendment be returned?

You will receive a confirmation copy of the amendment by mail. You will also be able to print a copy directly from their website.

Can you change the Ohio LLC members or managers on an amendment?

Yes. You would have to put a check in the little box that says, “Check here if additional provisions are attached.” Then, submit the changes on a single-sided 8 ½” x 11” sheet of paper.

Can you change the Ohio registered agent on the amendment?

You are not able to change your Ohio statutory agent on the Domestic Limited Liability Company Certificate of Amendment or Restatement form.

However, you are able to change your statutory agent information on the Statutory Agent Update form. The filing fee for that is $25.00

Can you change the principal office address and/or the mailing address on an LLC amendment?

Yes.
