Information on the Texas Business Organizations Code

The Texas Business Organizations Code (BOC) has replaced the following statutes:

Since the mandatory application date of January 1, 2010, the BOC applies to all Texas corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, and other domestic filing entities, as well as all foreign filing entities registered to transact business in Texas. The BOC applies regardless of an entity’s formation date or whether the entity has taken affirmative steps to adopt the BOC.

For more information about the history and implementation of the BOC, see our Educational Materials.
