As July 1 approaches, you’ll be hearing a lot more about this statute.  Also known as the Entity Transactions Act or Law, it substantially modernizes and rearranges Title 15.

Under the new law, there are five fundamental kinds of transactions that may take place, regardless of the form of the business entity.

– Merger of one entity with or into another;

– Conversion of one type of entity to another type of entity;

– Interest exchange between two entities so that one of them is controlled by the other without a merger;

– Division of one existing entity into two or more resulting types of associations;

– Domestication into Pennsylvania of an entity originally organized in another state.

There will also be several new filing forms that will be available on the Corporations Bureau website before July 1.

There will undoubtedly be a variety of seminars coming out in the near future.  Keep tuned in.
