Change in Company/LLP Name

A limited company’s name can be changed due to any reason with the consent of all the shareholders. Regardless of reason and time, the name can be changed but it shall happen under the mutual approval of shareholders. The reason can be anything like change in the vision & the mission of the company, change in management, conversion from private limited to public limited and so on. We shall discuss here the provision of the Companies Act,2013 which deals with the change in the name of the limited company.

Changes to the name of a company would require an alteration to the MOA by passing a special resolution. In case changes to the name of a private limited or public limited company is effected, consent or authorisation of Central Government is not required. In any other case, the consent of Central Government would be required. Further, in the event of a company being registered with a name that bears a resemblance to a name of an existing company, the Central Government might ask it to alter its name. In such a case ordinary resolution is adequate.
