    If you'll mention the specific company, we can provide specific advice on how to handle the changeover to the new company name, including tax consequences.

    I doubt if there are tax consequences, and I don't know why you need the name,but it was Corrections company of America and is now Core Civic inc. I have read there exists a single.command to do this.

    According to this info from the company, it is purely a name change and not a corporate action like a merger or a spinoff:

    You can use the Corporate Acquisitions - Name Change transaction type to make this name change.

    The same place you find all investment transaction types: the Enter transactions button in the respective account's transaction list. :
