Alteration of AOA ----------------------- You can alter the AOA with the prior approval of the members in General Meeting. However, alteration of AOA is not required for new director appointment or for transfer of shares. If you are changing you registered office address to another state, then you need to amend your MOA not AOA. if the change of registered office address is within the same state, then you need not even amend your MOA.
