The value of securities allotted in a company to its shareholders and debtholders. Where debt has been issued the issued share capital is shown separately. Contrast Authorised Capital, Issued Shares and Paid-up Capital.
The Issued capital is the value of the shares issued to the shareholders. This is the nominal value of the shares rather than their actual worth. The amount of issued capital can not exceed the amount of the authorised capital.
This is the portion of shares issued to shareholders. Most companies have an authorised capital which is greater than the issued one. The balance of the unissued shares may be issued later as bonus or rights issues.
The capital proposed by the company to be raised from the market. Out of the issued capital the shares for which both application and allotment monies are paid in full represents the paid-up capital.
