Hi from just Answer. I'm PDtax.

Corporate ownership of an S corp is not allowed. You might have to revoke your ABC Store Inc S status to have corporate ownership.

The other issues, such as changing the S corp name, are easily addressed, even online at your state secretary of state web portal.

or how about - converting INC into LLC, then make this LLC - part of parent INC. Is it possible?Is LLC require to pay salary if it is going to pass all income to parent company? Parent company can be responsible to pay the salary.
Financial Professional: PDtax, CPA, MBA replied 2 years ago

It may be possible in your state to directly convert your s corp to an LLC. Other states require a statutory merger of your s corp and a new LLC, with the LLC being the survivor entity.

You can set up the parent-child relationship so that the parent pays ask salaries.

Thanks again. Please rate my assistance using our rating scale. I'm PDtax.

thank you! I think LLC and INC as parent can make the things quite complex for now esp when the business is growing.What do you think about this idea?My existing company is ABC Store Inc.Lets change the name to ABC Inc.
then set up a DBA under ABC Inc.Is it easy enough process?In this way, I would able to use the same credit cards for all expenses. If at later stage, if business needs to be a separate entity, then I can consider to convert DBA into LLC and make that LLC child of the parent company ABC Inc. What do you think about this idea?
