    Steps Involved

    Conduct a Board Meeting and Pass a Resolution:
    The first step in shifting the registered office is to convene a board meeting and pass a resolution. This resolution should call for an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) and propose the alteration of the Memorandum of Association (MOA) through a Special Resolution. Ensure that the board meeting minutes accurately reflect the decisions made.

    Hold the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM):
    At the EGM, the shareholders of the company need to pass a Special Resolution approving the change of the registered office from one state to another and the alteration of the MOA. The EGM should be conducted in compliance with the legal requirements, and the minutes of the meeting should be duly maintained.

    File Form MGT-14 with the ROC:
    Within thirty days of passing the Special Resolution, file Form MGT-14 with the Registrar of Companies. This form notifies the ROC about the change of registered office and the alteration of the MOA. Ensure that the form is filled accurately and all the necessary supporting documents are attached.

    File Form INC-23 to the Regional Director:
    To obtain approval from the Central Government for shifting the registered office from one state to another and altering the MOA, file Form INC-23 with the Regional Director. This form must be submitted before one month of filing the application with the Regional Director.

    Publish a Notice of Change of Office:
    Before filing the application with the Regional Director, publish a notice of the change of office in a daily English newspaper and in the principal language newspaper of the district where the registered office is currently situated. This notice serves to inform interested parties about the proposed alteration and allows them to raise objections, if any.

    Serve Individual Notices:
    In addition to the public notice, serve individual notices to each depositor, debenture holder, and creditor of the company. These notices should state that if their interests are likely to be affected by the proposed alteration of the MOA, they can intimate their nature of interest and grounds of opposition to the Regional Director within twenty-one days from the date of publication of the notice.

    Obtain Approval from the Central Government:
    The Central Government will review the application for change of registered office address and dispose of it within sixty days, provided there are no objections or concerns raised. Once the approval is granted, proceed to the next step.

    File Approval with the ROC:
    File the approval granted by the Central Government with the ROC in Form INC-22 within sixty days from the date of approval. This form informs the ROC about the change in registered office and ensures compliance with the necessary legal requirements.

    File Form INC-28 with the ROC:
    File Form INC-28 with the ROCs of both the old and new states in which the registered offices are situated. This form notifies the ROCs about the change of registered office address and provides them with the relevant information.

    Post-Approval Compliances:
    After changing the registered office upon receipt of the ROC’s approval, make sure to follow these additional compliances:

    Issue a General Notice:
    Publish a general notice in a newspaper, informing all members and stakeholders about the change of the company’s registered office. This notice should include the new address and any other relevant details.

    Update Legal Documents:
    Print new copies of the MOA with the updated registered office address. Additionally, change the address outside every office, building, or premises where the company carries out its business, ensuring visibility and legibility.

    Update Official Publications:
    Replace the old address with the new registered office address on all business letterheads, letters, invoices, billheads, receipt forms, and other official publications of the company.

    Notify Banks and Financial Institutions:
    Inform all banks and financial institutions where the company holds accounts about the change of registered office address. Update the address associated with the company’s accounts for smooth financial transactions.

    Update Government Authorities and Service Providers:
    Update the company’s new address with relevant government authorities such as the Income Tax Authority, Customs Authorities, Central Excise Authorities, Service Tax Department, and Sales Tax Authorities. Also, notify utility service providers (e.g., telephone, internet, electricity) in the company’s name.

    Conclusion:

    Alteration of share capital is a crucial process that allows companies to adapt their capital structure to meet their changing needs. By altering share capital, companies can issue new shares, convert stock, and make other changes to support their growth and comply with legal requirements.
