For example: Widgets Limited has been registered with an authorized capital of $2,00,000 divided into 2,000 shares of $100 each of which, 1,000 shares were offered for public subscription at a premium of $5 per share, payable as:

  • on application $10
  • on allotment $25 (including premium)
  • on first call $40
  • on final call $30

For a total of $105/share

The amounts received would be carried as a current liability until such time as the stock is issued, then it would be considered as part of equity.
