  • Authorised Share Capital: Authorized capital, also called nominal capital, as stated in the Memorandum of Association (MOA) is the amount of share capital that a company can raise at any time by issuing new shares. A company cannot issue shares of the value more than the authorized capital.
  • Issued Share Capital: Issued Capital is issued by the company from time to time. The issued capital has to be within the limits of the authorized capital as stated in the memorandum. The issued share capital is either equal to or less than the authorized capital. It can never be more than the authorized capital of the company. It is also called as called-up capital.
  • Subscribed Share Capital: Subscribed capital is increased when members have subscribed to the shares of the company. Subscribed share capital should also be equal to or less than the issued share capital. The un-allotted capital out of the subscribed share capital is called unsubscribed share capital
  • Paid-Up Share Capital: Paid-up share capital is the aggregate amount of money received from shareholders for shares issued. Hence, the capital allotted and paid by shareholders is called paid-up capital. This shows the amount received either in cash or in kind by the company from the allottees of shares subscribed by them. That part of the subscribed capital that remains to be paid is called “Calls in Arrears” or “unpaid share capital”. Therefore, paid-up share capital is shown after deducting from the subscribed capital and the unpaid share capital.
