Business Filing Statement for Calendar Year 2017

Dear Employer:

Ohio Law requires each organization that employs a licensed individual in the direct practice of speech-language pathology and audiology to submit a business filing form.  The form is available to download at the link below in PDF or Microsoft Word format.  Pursuant to Ohio Administrative Code section 4753-1-03(A), Business Filings are due at the Board office by March 1, 2018.  In an effort to reduce paper and support the “Go Green” campaign, your form and any attachments must be submitted electronically to the Board via fax at (614) 485-1029 or e-mail at board@shp.ohio.gov.  There is no penalty for a late submission.  You do not need to contact the Board to request an extension.  You will not receive a confirmation upon submitting your form.  Keep your original statement for your records. The original form will serve as your receipt of filing.
