Benefit Corporation FAQs

May I change from a traditional corporation to a benefit corporation?

If you are incorporated in a state that authorizes benefit corporations, then yes. If your incorporation state doesn't yet allow benefit corporations, you can either change your corporation's home state or form a new corporation in a state that does.

Does every state permit benefit corporations?

No. As of January 1, 2016, only 30 states and the District of Columbia allow you to incorporate as a benefit corporation: AR, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, FL, HI, ID, IN, IL, LA, MA, MD, MN, MT, NE, NH, NJ, NY, NV, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, UT, VA, VT, and WV. Idaho's benefit corporation law takes effect on July 1, 2015. Expect the number of states permitting benefit corporations to increase in coming years.
