A for-profit corporation or for-profit company is a corporation that is intended to operate a business which will return a profit to the owners. A for-profit corporation, depending on the jurisdiction to which it is incorporated, may be operated either as a stock corporation or as a non-stock corporation.
A non-profit corporation, on the other hand, is always a non-stock corporation.
