Overview of Increase in Authorized Capital

The authorized capital is the maximum amount of capital which can be raised by a Company through the issue of shares to its shareholders. An increase in authorized capital might be required for issuing new shares and/or inducing more capital into the Company. Our professional can help you concerning the filing and issuing of shares concerning the increase in the authorized share capital of the Company.

Authorized Capital is mentioned in the capital clause of the Memorandum of Association of the company. And if the company wants more capital then, the capital clause has to be amended by the members by passing a special or ordinary resolution (as there is no specification about nature of resolution under S. 61) as per S. 61 of the Companies Act, 2013 at a meeting. Following are the pre-requisite before filing an application to MCA for an increase in the authorized capital:

• Check/verify whether AoA provides for an increase in authorized capital. If it does not provide then the same must be amended to the effect under section 14 of the Companies Act, 2013 by passing a special resolution.
• A board meeting for notifying the call for Extraordinary meeting (EGM) must be held.
• An ordinary or special resolution (preferably Special resolution) for an increase in authorized capital i.e. for alterations in MoA & AoA must be passed in such EGM.

After fulfilling the above pre-requisite, file the prescribed form i.e. e-Form SH-7 with the registrar within 30 days of passing of the ordinary resolution. Following documents must be attached:

• Board Resolution for an increase in authorized share capital.
• Board resolution for modification in the capital clause of MoA.
• Shareholder’s resolution passed in EGM.
• Altered copy of MoA & AoA.

Advantages of Increase in Authorized Capital

  1. Flexibility: Increasing the authorized capital of a company provides it with the flexibility to issue more shares in the future if needed, without having to go through the process of amending its MoA and AoA again.
  2. Funding: Increasing the authorized capital makes it easier for a company to raise additional funding by issuing new shares to its shareholders or other investors.
  3. Improved creditworthiness: A company with a higher authorized capital may be perceived as more creditworthy by lenders and investors, as it has the potential to raise more capital if needed.
  4. Investment opportunities: With a higher authorized capital, a company can pursue new investment opportunities and expand its business operations.
  5. Valuation: Increasing the authorized capital can also have a positive impact on the company’s valuation, as it can lead to a higher market capitalization and share price.
  6. Mergers and Acquisitions: Companies with higher authorized capital are also more attractive targets for mergers and acquisitions, as they can facilitate larger transactions.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
