NY Assembly Bill 8116 is signed into law concerning not-for-profit organizations

new-york-legNew York Assembly Bill 8116 was signed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on November 28, 2016. NY A8116 allows certain not-for-profit corporations to convert to a for-profit corporation. The bill became effective November 28, 2016, and is repealed 180 days after its enactment, May 28, 2017.

In order to convert, the not-for-profit corporation is required to obtain consent from the NYS A
ttorney General. To obtain consent, the incorporator or incorporators must submit to the attorney general sworn statements under the penalties of perjury certifying the following:

(1) that legal advice had not been sought or received as to the appropriate course of action that would have resulted in correct registration allowing for the intended for-profit operation of the entity.

(2) the entity at no time received the benefits and/or privileges of being recognized as a not-for-profit corporation, such as being exempt from incurring any local, state, or federal taxes.

(3) the entity throughout its operation as a not-for-profit corporation did not at any time solicit and/or receive any private and/or public grants or charitable donations.

(4) the office of the attorney general has provided written indication that either it does not object to, or it approves of, the proposed conversion.
