      An Overview on Company Name Change

      Sometimes a company's name just doesn't feel right or work well for the company; other times, you may need to change the name of your company to distance yourself from a bad reputation. In this case, you can rename your business to something that better fits your long-term objectives. While choosing a new name may seem simple, going through the legal process to change your company's name is time-consuming.

      Zolvit has developed this service in order to make that change simple for you. We've made the process as convenient as we can and will ensure that we take care of the entire process for you.

          Checklist for Company Name Change: Things to Know

          • Any rights or obligations of the company, as well as any legal actions taken against or on behalf of the company in its previous name, will not be impacted by the name change
          • After a new name has been registered by the RoC, any new legal actions brought against the company in the old name are invalid. It is best to treat the business under its previous name as nonexistent. However, the new name may be inserted by amending the complaint
          • A company may proceed with the legal actions undertaken under its previous name
          • Despite the name change, the company continues to exist as an entity.

          How to Change a Company’s Name with Zolvit

          The five simple step involved in changing a company’s name with ease involves:

          • Step 1: Passing a Board Resolution

            A resolution to change the company's name must be approved by the board of directors at a meeting. Zolvit experts will help you in getting the new name approved by the directors. We will then designate a company secretary (CS) to contact the MCA to inquire about the proposed name's availability.

          • Step 2: Checking for Name Availability

            The authorised Zolvit expert will then apply to the MCA in form INC-1 for checking the availability of the proposed name. Our experts may also run a trademark search for the proposed name.

          • Step 3: Passing Special Resolution

            Our experts will then help you call an extraordinary general meeting as soon as the new name is confirmed to be available. This meeting is necessary to change the name and make the necessary adjustments to the AoA and the MoA, through a special resolution.

          • Step 4: Applying to the Registrar

            Within 30 days of passing the special resolution and the filing form MGT-14, which contains information about the special resolution, the same must be submitted to the RoC.

            Do note that Form INC-24 must be submitted to RoC along with the required fee within 30 days of submitting the MGT-14. This is necessary in order to get the central government's approval for the name change.

          • Step 5: Issuance of the Certificate of Incorporation

            The RoC will then issue a new certificate of incorporation reflecting the name change once it is completely satisfied with the application and any supporting documentation.
