It surprises some people when they learn that Ohio has the seventh-largest economy in the U.S., but the fact is that the Buckeye State has a growing business sector that includes a wide variety of industries. If you expect to have any kind of retail business here, however, you’ll need to get a seller’s permit. In Ohio, this type of permit is called a vendor’s license, while other states usually have another name for it, such as resale license, wholesale license, sales tax permit, or sales and use tax permit. No matter what it’s called, this permit grants a business the authority to collect sales tax on retail transactions conducted in the state.
Fortunately, it’s not difficult to obtain one of these Ohio wholesale licenses—not when you use the online ordering form we have set up for you at FastFilings. We’ve streamlined the ordering process to the point where it takes only a few minutes to request your vendor’s license. Once you’ve placed your order for your Ohio seller’s permit, we handle the rest.
Who Is Required to Get a Reseller Permit in Ohio?
Basically, if your business is engaged in retail sales of tangible property or taxable services anywhere in the state of Ohio, you need a vendor’s license. You must have a license for each “fixed place of business” you operate. A transient vendor’s license is available for businesses that sell at temporary sales sites. Out-of-state retailers that do business in Ohio must register for what is called a seller’s use tax account.
It’s not always clear whether a particular business is subject to the requirement to have a wholesale license in Ohio. Contact us if you have questions about your eligibility.
Seller’s Permit Vs. Resale Certificate in OH
Despite the similarities in their names, an Ohio seller’s permit should not be confused with an Ohio resale certificate. They have very different purposes. A resale certificate in Ohio (or Certificate of Exemption) grants you the right to purchase goods on a tax-free basis provided that you intend to resell them later. This certificate is given by the buyer to the seller to verify that the transaction is not subject to sales tax.
