Paid-up Capital


Ajit Kumar AJIT KUMARWISDOM IAS, New Delhi.

Paid-up capital is the amount of a company's capital that has been funded by shareholders. This would not include any shares that have been bid on, but not yet purchased. Paid-up capital can be less than a company's total capital because a company may not issue all of the shares that it has been authorized to sell. Paid-up capital can also reflect how a company depends on equity financing. A company that is fully paid-up has sold all available shares, and thus cannot increase its capital unless it borrows money through debt or is authorized to sell more shares
