Increase of authorized capital

An increase in authorized capital is used to increase financial resources (attracting investments, increasing personal working capital), increase stability and solvency, expand and developing business, and change the ownership structure.

The statutory capital of any company can be increased both through additional contributions of company members and without such contributions.

The second scenario can occur if the profits are not distributed. The ratio of shares of company participants in the authorized capital, as well as the composition of participants.

The implementation of this involves holding a general meeting of participants and approving the decision in the form of a protocol or the owner making a sole decision.

The members of the company have the authority to independently decide what amount of profit is redistributed to increase the authorized capital.

Each member of the company has a preferential right to make an additional contribution within the amount of the increase in the authorized capital, proportional to his share in the authorized capital.
