We can help you to amend, convert, draft or create a memorandum of incorporation. Under the new Companies Act, all companies must convert their existing “memorandum and articles of association” to a “memorandum of incorporation” or “MOI” to bring it in line (harmony) with the Companies Act.

On 1 May 2011 the “Memorandum and Articles of Association” were renamed the Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI or Memorandum). It is the same document, it just got a new name. By 1 May 2013, every company that existed before 1 May 2011 (called a “pre-existing company”) needed to amend its Memorandum to bring it in line (harmony) with the new Companies Act. If you haven’t done this, we can prepare the documents you need to do this and help you with the process. If you’d like us to help you amend a memorandum quickly and easily, just email us your details and we will contact you.
