C Corporation FAQs

What compliance rules must I follow as a C Corporation owner?

C Corporations need to have shareholders, directors, and officers. They must hold director and shareholder meetings, keep corporate minutes, and allow shareholders to vote on major corporate decisions. Your C Corporation also needs to file annual reports and maintain good standing in state(s) where you’re incorporated.

Can I change my corporation status or convert to an LLC in the future?

Yes, you can convert an S Corporation to a C Corporation or an LLC should your business needs change. The decision to convert must be approved by the shareholders. Conversion planning depends on your company’s specific circumstance, so be sure to discuss your plans with a legal professional.
