In order to add a new shareholder to a private limited company in Pakistan, the following steps should be taken:
- Review the company’s articles of association to determine the process for issuing new shares and the conditions that must be met in order to do so. The articles of association should specify the number of shares that the company is authorized to issue and the rights and obligations attached to those shares.
- Obtain the consent of the existing shareholders to the issue of new shares. This may require the convening of a general meeting of shareholders to consider and vote on the issue of new shares.
- Determine the subscription price for the new shares. The subscription price is the amount of money that the new shareholder will be required to pay for the shares. The subscription price may be a fixed amount or a percentage of the par value of the shares.
- Issue a share certificate to the new shareholder. The share certificate should specify the number of shares held by the shareholder and the terms and conditions of the shares.
- Update the company’s register of shareholders to reflect the addition of the new shareholder. The register of shareholders should include the name, address, and number of shares held by each shareholder.
It’s worth noting that the process for adding a new shareholder to a private limited company in Pakistan may vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case and the provisions of the company’s articles of association. It is important for the company to comply with the relevant laws and regulations and to follow the proper procedures for issuing new shares in order to protect the rights and interests of all shareholders.
