      An Overview on Raising Authorised Share Capital of a Company

      The maximum number of shares a private business can sell is determined by its permitted capital. According to the new Companies Act of 2013, no minimum capital is required. The vast majority of today's companies are self-funded and cash-strapped. As a result, they are unable to spend huge sums on getting a higher authorised share capital ceiling during the incorporation process. However, once the company expands they will need to raise the authorised share capital limit to issue more shares and make up for funding needs.

      In order to issue additional shares or raise the allowed capital capital clause of the memorandum of association must be changed by adopting an ordinary resolution by the board.

          Checklist to Raise Authorised Share

          • Check the AoA for a provision to enhance the approved share capital
          • If the AoA does not allow for an increase, it must be changed in accordance with Section 14 of the Companies Act of 2013
          • To approve the increase in authorised share capital, issue a notice for a board meeting to amend the AoA
          • Call an extraordinary general meeting to amend the articles of association in order to approve the increase in authorised share capital
          • Give notification at least seven days before the board meeting and at least 21 days before the EGM.

          How to Raise Authorised Share Capital with Zolvit

          To raise authorised share capital in India, gather all of the above documents and follow the steps below:

          • Step 1: Verify AoA of the Company

            Before beginning the steps for raising the authorised share capital, check the AaA to confirm that a provision to increase the authorised share capital is included in the articles of association. If such a provision does not exist, the corporation must first make revisions to its AoA. If you’re unsure about whether your company is eligible to raise authorised share capital without amending AoA, don’t worry as the Zolvit experts will take over the entire process for you from step 1 itself.

          • Step 2: Convene a Board Meeting

            To increase the company's authorised share capital, a board meeting must be called by giving notice to the directors. Obtaining approval from the board of directors for expanding the authorised share capital is required at the board meeting.

            Following this procedure, a date should be set for an extraordinary general meeting to acquire shareholder approval for raising the authorised share capital and making modifications to the company's memorandum of association.

            Finally, get consent from the board of directors, as well as the company secretary present at the meeting, to submit the notice of the extraordinary general meeting to the shareholders. The notice of extraordinary general meeting should be given to all of the company's shareholders, directors, and auditors following the approval.

          • Step 3: Obtain Approval in an Extra-Ordinary General Meeting

            Organise an extraordinary general meeting and get shareholder approval to increase the authorised share capital at the time, date, and location specified in the notification.

            An ordinary resolution must be passed by the shareholders to approve the increase in authorised capital.

          • Step 4: Filing of Form with RoC

            After the ordinary resolution is passed at the extraordinary general meeting, the company must file Form SH7 within 30 days of the ordinary resolution being passed. The required government fee for the raise in authorised capital must be paid, along with the papers listed below -

            • Notice relating to the EGM
            • Authorised true copy of the ordinary resolution
            • Altered memorandum of association depicting the raised authorised capital.
          • Step 5: Allotment of Shares

            The registrar will approve the filing and raise the company's authorised share capital if the procedure described in the Companies Act and the companies rules is followed to enhance the company's authorised capital. The higher authorised share capital will be shown on the MCA website.

            The RoC will issue a new certificate of incorporation to the company if the CIN number changes owing to a change in the industry code.
