How Does Increasing Authorised Share Capital, Benefit A Business?
Increasing authorised share capital helps bring in more capital! This is achieved by issuing more shares
to current promoters or by bringing in new shareholders.
The Essentials of Authorised Capital
It is the authorized capital of a private company that determines the maximum number of shares it can issue. Most start-ups begin with the minimum authorised capital of Rs. 1 lakh, which becomes too little as the business grows. To issue new shares or to raise the Authorised Capital, the capital clause of the Memorandum of Association is amended by passing a special resolution by the board.
The Benefits of Increasing Authorised Capital
Increases Share Capital
A company can only raise its share capital beyond what it is prescribed in its MOA (Memorandum of Association) if authorised capital. Hence, increasing authorized capital has an incremental effect on the overall company share capital.
Enhances Borrowing Capacity
With the increase in share capital, the company’s overall net worth also increases. This further enhances the borrowing capacity of the company.
Checklist For Increasing Authorised Capital

- If AoA does not permit increase, then AoA must be modified as per section 14 of the companies act 2013.
- Issue notice for calling EOBM (Extraordinary Board Meeting) to modify AoA, for approving the increase in authorized share capital.
- Issue notice at least seven days before the meeting.
