Unlocking Growth Potential through Increased Authorized Capital

    • A higher authorized capital can attract potential investors and foster strategic partnerships.

    Increasing the authorised share capital of a company involves following a series of procedures. Here is a simplified version of the steps:

    1. Verify Articles of Association (AOA):
    Ensure that the AOA of the company contains provisions for increasing the authorized share capital. If necessary, make amendments to the AOA before proceeding.

    2. Convene a Board Meeting:
    Issue a notice to the directors and convene a Board meeting to seek their approval for increasing the authorized share capital.

    3. Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM):
    Fix a date for conducting an EGM to obtain approval from the shareholders for increasing the authorized share capital and make changes to the Memorandum of Association (MOA).

    4. Notify Shareholders:
    Present the notice of the EGM to all shareholders, directors, and auditors of the company, and obtain the necessary approvals from them.

    5. Conduct EGM:
    Hold the EGM as scheduled, where shareholders vote on the proposed increase in authorized share capital. The approval should be in the form of an ordinary resolution.

    6. File ROC Forms:
    Within 30 days of passing the ordinary resolution, file Form SH7 with the Registrar of Companies (ROC). Pay the prescribed government fee and attach the required documents, such as the EGM notice, a copy of the ordinary resolution, and the amended MOA reflecting the higher authorized capital.

    7. Approval and Reflecting Changes:
    Upon following the procedures specified in the Companies Act and Companies Rules, the Registrar will approve the filing, and the authorized share capital of the company will be increased. The updated authorized share capital will be reflected on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) portal.

    8. Allotment of Shares:
    Once the authorized share capital is increased, the company can issue fresh equity shares to increase the paid-up share capital.

    Please note that this is a general overview, and it is advisable to consult with a legal or financial professional to ensure compliance with specific legal requirements and regulations pertaining to your jurisdiction and company type.
