Understanding Company Name Change Process
A company uses a name for its identification purposes and that can be changed as per the management’s desire after receiving consent from shareholders of the Company and MCA. This can, however, be done any time after incorporation of the Company. Change in the name will not have any impact on the existence of a Company, while its assets, liabilities, and functioning of will stay the same.
The process of selection of a name is quite similar to the procedure followed by a Company at the time of its incorporation. For altering the Company’s unique identity / the name, the board members need to pass a board resolution as well as a special resolution, acquire permission from MCA for the name change, and also file an application for approval for the new name. Once the MCA accepts the name change, a new certificate of incorporation is issued which needs to be used for making further changes in Memorandum of Association (MOA) and Article of Association (AOA) of the entity.

Most of the times, merger of two businesses result in combined name for the newly formed organization that reflects the association of both the Companies.

The Consent is Critical
A Company cannot change its name without the consent of existing Directors and Shareholders. The directors pass a board resolution as well as special resolution to take the process further.
Once the Board of Directors finalizes a new name of the firm, the availability of the elected name is checked under Reserve Unique Name (RUN) facility. Registrar of Company (ROC) will approve the new name only if it is unique in nature and not identical to any existing names.
This Convention is Extraordinary
After acquiring a thumbs-up from RoC on the finalized name, the directors organize an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of shareholders where a special resolution is passed. The conference is, however, to be notified at least 21 days prior to proposing the EGM’s agenda.
If more than 75% of shareholders agree on Company’s name change decision, the application is filed to RoC along with special resolution and other relevant documents.
Viola! Here it is Done!
Post a satisfactory inspection of the submitted paperwork, the registrar issues a fresh certificate of Incorporation.
