Change in the Name of the Company

As per companies act, 2013, a company has separate legal entity. So, it must have its own name & the same is mentioned in MoA & AoA. But there may be situations like change in objectives, change in management, change in business model, rebranding etc. which necessitates the idea of changing the name of company or LLP. So, the name of the Company /LLP can be changed even after its incorporation anytime as per the procedure prescribed in S. 13 of the Companies Act, 2013. To change the name of a company, shareholder’s approval is required along with approval from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. The change of name of a company or LLP however has NO impact on:

• Legal entity of company or LLP & continuity of its business.
• Rights & obligations of the company or LLP
• Legal proceedings pending in the old name

Hence, the change in name of company or LLP does not create new entity; & all assets and liabilities of the entity would continue, while only the name of the company would have been changed.

The process of Change of company name contains various steps like first & foremost requirement of passing of a board resolution, obtaining name approval from MCA, passing of a special resolution and applying for approval of new company name to the MCA. If the MCA accepts the application, a new certificate of incorporation is issued. After obtaining the new certificate of incorporation, changes must be made to incorporate and change the MOA and AOA of the company as well. Legal Suvidha Providers will assist you in all legal guidance and documentation involved in change of name of the entity. Total Time taken to complete the whole process is 20-25 working days.

The important thing that is to be kept in mind is that the company which has changed its name should ask those companies in which it is holing shares, to substitute its old certificates by new ones.
