Increasing share capital of an LTD company

The General Assembly of Shareholders of the limited liability company decide on the increase of share capital. The increase in share capital can be done in the following manner:

  • by increasing share capital with new cash deposit,
  • or by increasing share capital from the company’s assets.

Our legal department can consult you on the differences in the procedures and obligations each of them brings along.

What procedures do you have to carry out to increase the share capital?

Firstly, you would have to accept a decision on increasing share capital. All shareholders have to sign an appropriate decree. It has to be accepted with at least a ¾ majority of all shareholders. The notary would have to attest the decree.

Secondly, you would need to take over the new inputs. When increasing the share capital, the current shareholders have priority rights to take over new inputs. They can take them over in proportion to their shares in the share capital. The deadline to enforce this right is 14 days since the General Assembly, where the decree on increasing the share capital was accepted. The notary has to prepare the documents of the takeover in notary form.

Thirdly, you would need to enter the new inputs into the court registry. If the deposit will be in cash, the shareholders will have to transfer it to the company’s bank account.

The final phase of the procedure is changing the act of establishment for the entry to the court registry. The new structure will come into force when the changes are visible in the court registry.
