About Change in Company Name

A company’s name can be changed at any time after its incorporation. It being an entity regulated by law, it has to follow a specific process provided by the Companies Act, 2013. The process includes conducting board meeting and member’s meeting for their respective consent, which will be followed by name reservation and approval from Central Government for said change. Fresh Certificate of Incorporation will be issued by RoC in new name after updating the Register of Companies. The company name change does not impact the existence of the company, which leaves all the assets and liabilities unaffected.
