Change of Pvt. Ltd. Company Name

The Companies Act, 2013 puts in place a well-defined process for change of company name. The name of the company may be changed with the consent of more than 75% of shareholders, followed by approval from the ROC and the Central Government

Preliminary Note on Name Change of Company

The name of a company is its unique identity of a private limited company, and the same is the first clause of the MOA (also known as Name Clause). In case the management of the company desires to change the name of the company, it can be done with the consent of its shareholders and with the ROC’s approval. There is a four-stage approval requirement for effecting change in the name of the company. Following are the requirements of obtaining prior approval in the process of the company name change.
Legal Provision: In general, all companies, whether new or old, are eligible to apply for a company name change. However, The Section 13 (2) of the Companies Act, 2013, read with Rule 29(2) of the Companies (Incorporation) Rules, 2014, does not permit name change if the company has not filed ROC Annual Return, Financial Statement or any other report/documents to ROC on time.

Step Wise Process of Company Name Change

STEP 1 – Held Board Meeting
The board of directors decides the proposed name, passes a Resolution For Name Change, and authorises the filing of RUN Application for name reservation for the new company name.
STEP 2 – File RUN Application
Once the board of directors has decided on its new name, a request for Reservation of New Name is made to the ROC under the RUN (Reserve Unique Name) facility. With the RUN application, a copy of the Board Resolution and NOC from the Trademark Owner (if applicable) is also filed. The government fee for filing the RUN application is Rs. 1000/-. The ROC approves the new name if it is unique and not the same or similar to an already existing company, LLP, Domain or Trademark.
STEP 3 – Hold EGM
After approval of the name is received from the office of the registrar of companies, the next logical step is to seek approval of the shareholders of the company. To convene an EGM, the directors must send notice to every shareholder of the company at least 21 clear days before the date of EGM. The notice for EGM must contain the draft of the proposed resolution to be passed as a special resolution and explanatory statement.
STEP 4 – Filing of MGT-14 (Registration of Special Resolution)
The special resolution means a decision taken by more than 75% voting rights. Once adopted in the EGM, the special resolution is filed before the ROC for their approval in Form -MGT-14 with the prescribed fee within 30 days of the passing of the resolution.
STEP 5 – Filing of INC-24 (Seeking Approval of Central Government)
The application to change the company’s name is filed in Form INC-24 along with an amended copy of MOA & AOA, Copy of Notice of EGM and the special resolution. After ROC’s satisfaction, a fresh Certificate of Incorporation is issued with the company’s new name.
STEP 6 – Issue of Fresh Certificate of Incorporation by ROC
With the approval of MGT-14 and INC-24, the ROC issues a fresh Certificate of Incorporation with the changed name. The company is under obligation to update the new name everywhere, in place of the old name change Name Everywhere.

Frequently Asked Questions About Company Name Change

The company name change is a legal procedure; team setindiabiz shall help you at each stage of the process for your company’s name change. For this purpose, the Board of Directors has to pass a resolution followed by 3/4 shareholders consent. For new name availability and confirmation, the company has to make an application in RUN Form.
