Im a Michigan resident trying to start a new retail pharmacy

Customer Question

I'm a Michigan resident trying to start a new retail pharmacy business in Ohio. Is it legally possible for me as a MI resident to incorporate in Ohio and how (forms and steps) ?? Can I incorporate in MI and conduct business in Ohio?? What are the requirements and steps?? What are the advantages and disadvantages of doing so?? Is there any tax disadvantages or complications for a Michigan corps in conducting business in Ohio??

You can incorporate in Michigan and conduct business in Ohio. However, to do so you would have to qualify your business in Ohio. The down side of this is that you impose on yourself taxation in two states, Michigan where you are incorporated and Ohio where you operate. To incorporate in Ohio you have to file a certificate of incorporation.
