Corporate ISKCON, Part 56

BY: SUN STAFF


Sep 16, 2010 — CANADA (SUN) — A systematic review of ISKCON-related corporations and projects.

In today's Cluster Report, we have two corporations with similar names -- Vedic Cultural Association and Vedic Cultural Association, Inc. The former has an address of Watseka Avenue, Los Angeles, and is incorporated in Oregon. The second is incorporated in Miami, Florida. They share a common director, James Higgins.

A second new listing in today's report is also tied to the Watseka Avenue address -- International Society for Krishna Consciousness of California [Oregon], incorporated by Ramesvara, et al. Our readers have probably noticed over the course of this series that many entities are incorporated as "foreign" non-profits or for-profits. This generally refers to the fact that an entity by the same name or using the same d/b/a/ name, is already incorporated elsewhere, usually in another U.S. state, but in some cases, in a foreign country.

Also in today's map is one of the more interestingly named entities we've come across: The Hare Krishna Temple Brahmana Priest and His Successors, a Corporation Sole.

A number of the corporations in today's map are currently inactive. As can be seen from the individual company listings, there are many variations in the way state registries specify a corporation's inactive status. In some cases, the entity has simply lapsed due to not having filed an Annual Report and/or paying annual fees. These are often noted as 'not in good standing' for a grace period, then revised to 'involuntarily revoked', 'involuntarily dissolved', or 'authority revoked'.

We sometimes see the nomenclature, 'voluntarily dissolved' or 'dissolved by administrative resolution', which typically means the corporation's directors intentionally acted to dissolve the corporation. However, a corporation may also be noted as ' involuntarily dissolved' or 'authority revoked' due to a failure to comply with various legal requirements, including tax and licensure issues.

In the milieu of ISKCON corporations, we find most interesting are those corporations 'dissolved by administrative resolution', which indicates a strategy for closure or consolidation, a re-disposition of assets, etc.
