Shareholders' Resolution to Change Company Name (Circulating Resolution)This Shareholders' Resolution can be voted on as a special resolution to change a company's name.
A Shareholders' Resolution to Change Company Name serves as a written record of the decision of the shareholders of a company to change the name of the company. Shareholders of a proprietary company can, by special resolution at a general meeting, change the name of a company.
A special resolution must be passed by at least 75% of the votes cast by shareholders of the company entitled to vote on the resolution. The company must lodge a copy of the special resolution with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission within 14 days after it is passed.
Once the resolution is passed, the company must take the necessary steps to update its legal documents and inform relevant stakeholders of the name change.
