Capital clause

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

The clause in the memorandum of association of a company dealing with its capital. It states the amount of the company’s nominal capital. and the number and amount of the shares it is permitted to have. It need not classify the shares though sometimes does, which makes it more difficult for rights to be altered.
