Change your Company Name

A private limited company has the option to amend the name it initially selected during its incorporation, albeit subject to specific procedures. For a private limited company to change its name, it necessitates the passing of a special resolution by the shareholders, along with securing approval from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA). This underscores that altering a company’s name isn’t a unilateral decision but entails the consensus of all involved parties. Nonetheless, despite the name change, the company’s legal standing and ongoing existence remain unchanged. While the process may appear complex, adherence to the regulations delineated in the Companies Act of 2013 is imperative. Ultimately, renaming a company should be approached with careful deliberation and meticulous planning to ensure a seamless transition and uphold the business’s integrity.
