Increase Authorized Capital
Each business needs more money over time to run the business. These funds may be needed in the long run and in the short term. The short-term need can be met by borrowing and development. But to continue, the company will need extra money. In a limited company, this can be done by raising the principal authorized capital of the company. As a limited private company is governed and regulated under the Company Act to make changes to the structure it is necessary to comply with the Act and the prescribed rules.
Upon registration of a Private Limited Company, the authorized and paid amount is specified in the company’s MOA. The company may therefore issue new shares within the mandated limit stated in the MOA. If a company wishes to withdraw more shares than the specified limit then amendments must be made to the MOA.
What is the main approved fee?
In terms of Section 2 (8) of the Companies Act, 2013 “Authorized Capital” is the capital approved by a company memorandum to be the maximum amount of a company’s share capital.
A company may expand its business to an authorized level. In the event that a company has to expand its business by investing more than before, the company should increase its authorized revenue by following the steps outlined in this article.
Increase in Authorized Share Fees
The Company may need to increase the approved budget before issuing new shares and increasing the amount paid. As a fixed share is the total number of shares a company can issue. The amount paid is the total number of company shares issued.
The amount paid does not exceed the authorized fee. Therefore, if the company approves Rs.10 lakhs and the Rs.10 lakhs payment would like to include new shareholders then it can be done:
- Increasing the maximum amount of authorized shares and issuing new shares (or)
- Transferring shares from existing shareholders to new shareholders.
In many cases after the news of new shares the authorized fee goes up. Contact our advisors for assistance in growing an approved budget.
