If the board of directors feels that in future the company
may not need the share capital which is not yet called up,
the company may pass a special resolution in the general
meeting of the shareholders stating that it will not demand
for the uncancelled amount on shares unless and until the
company is liquidated. This particular amount of
uncancelled share capital in this case is known as RESERVED

If we consider RESERVED CAPITAL from the view point of
creditors, it becomes a very big security. But from the
view point of the shareholders, this may be considered as a
liability. Offcourse, the amount is not called up till the
company's liquidation; thus, so far shareholders are not


Lets talk about CAPITAL RESERVE now. Capital reserve is a
fund created from a special type of profit. Plz note that
revenue profit is NOT considered a part of this one.
Capital reserve examples are as follows:

1. Share premium received for issuing shares at premium.

2. Debenture premium

3. Profit realised after revaluation of company assets.

Normally, capital reserve is utilised to write off
fictitious assets.

Capital reserve is one type of special fund which is created
after the board meeting with special consideration that the
share holders will not demand for the same and it is also
not withdrawn at the time of liquidition. It is created at
the time of revaluation of assets and only part of Capital
gains not the revenue gain.

While the rreserved capital is accumulated surplus by the
firm and can be utilized when needed. This has one advantage
that it can be withdrawn at the time of liquidation and can
be converted into cash.
