Understanding Increase in Authorized Capital

The number of equity shares that can be issued to shareholders depends on the Authorized Capital of the company and in order to increase the number of equity shares the company needs to increase its Authorized Capital and pay the prescribed registration fees to the Registrar of Companies.

The authorized capital paid by the Company at the start of its operations is disclosed in the Memorandum of Association (MOA), while in most of the cases the initial authorized capital of a company is INR 1 Lakh.

A company can increase its authorized capital by notifying the matter to the Board of Directors and drafting a resolution on the same. On receiving approval, the company can make the desired changes in MOA and Articles of Association (AOA) of the company.

Key-Elements of Increase Authorized Capital

Existing Promoters

New Shareholders

Existing Promoters

If a Company decides to increase authorized capital and issue new shares to existing promoters, a board meeting is called upon and a Form PAS – 3 needs to be duly filed with the Registrar of Companies (RoC), intimating the allotment of shares.

New Shareholders

It gets quite complicated when a Company decides to increase authorized capital by issuing shares to new shareholders. The process necessitates the Company to generate a valuation report from a registered Chartered Accountant.
