Overview

A private limited company's legal entity or existence as a corporate entity is unaffected by its name change. A firm's name change does not result in the formation of a new company or organization.

The following items are not affected due to the name change:
  • Affect the company's rights and liabilities.
  • Make any legal action taken by or against the firm meaningless.
  • Any legal procedures by or against the firm that are underway in the previous name will not be affected; they will be continued in the old name.
A firm that has not submitted annual reports or financial statements with the Registrar, or that has failed to pay or refund matured deposits or debentures, or interest thereon, will not be allowed to change its name.



Benefits of Changing Name of Company

Rebranding

Name assumes the brand value of the corporate and intention to enhance the brand value is usually a reason to vary the name.

Change within the business objective

Change within the name could also be required thanks to a change of business objective. If the name doesn't truly reflect the altered objective, it is often changed in line with the target. The corporate must apply for a change if the Registrar has directed to try to so in such a case.
