from$330 (INCL GST)
The Corporations Act limits a company’s ability to reduce its share capital prior to the company being wound up. The main reason for this is to protect the interests of creditors who are faced with the principle of limited liability should the company become insolvent, but also acts to protect the interests of and ensure fairness between shareholders.
A company can reduce its issued share capital in a number of ways under the Corporations Act 2001
Share Class Conversion
from$550 (INCL GST)
Subject to the governing documents, a company may convert shares from one class of shares to another. Section 246F(1)(b) of the Corporations Act 2001 states that a company must lodge notice in the prescribed form following “a conversion of shares in a class of shares in the company into shares in another class.”
In order to notify ASIC of this change, a Form Notification of division or conversion of classes of shares will need to be lodged. In order to avoid late fees, this form will need to be lodged within 14 days of the date of the conversion and cannot be lodged online.
from$660 (INCL GST)
A company may convert its shares into a larger or smaller number by shareholders simply passing an ordinary resolution at an (Extraordinary) General Meeting [CA sec 254H].
Such a process might be seen as beneficial, particularly in a stock exchange listed company, to enhance the company’s profile and/or trading in its shares and/or market acceptability because it is seen by some parties as having ‘too many’ or ‘too few’ shares on issue and out ‘in the market’.
from$495 (INCL GST)
Reinstatement will restore a company to registered as if it was never deregistered.
If ASIC approves reinstatement, the entity will be revived as if it had never been deregistered, and all the directors and shareholders resume their rights and responsibilities as they were at the time of deregistration.
