called-up share capital


called-up share capital
That part of the issued share capital of a company payment for which has either been received ( paid-up share capital) or requested but not yet received (called-up share capital not paid). Some shares are paid for in part at the time of issue, with subsequent requests (calls) for the outstanding payment (see partly paid share). When all calls have been paid, the called-up share capital will equal the paid-up share capital.
