a)      Prorata Allotment.
b)      Convertible Debentures.
c)       Corporate Dividend Tax.
d)      Purchase Consideration.
e)      Minority Interest.
f)       Goodwill.
Ans: a) Prorata Allotment: When the number of shares applied is more than the number of shares issued by a company, the issue of shares is said to be oversubscribed. The company cannot allot shares more than those offered for subscription. In case of over-subscription, there are three possibilities arise:
(a) Some applicants may not be allotted any shares. This is known as ‘rejection of applications’.
(b) Some applicants may be allotted less number of shares than they have applied for. This is known as partial or pro-rata allotment.
(c) Some applicants may be allotted the full number of shares they have applied for. This is known as full allotment.
In such a situation if shares are allotted in proportion of shares issued to shares applied, then such an allotment is called partial or Prorata allotment. For example, if company allots shares to the applicants of 70,000 shares. It is a pro-rata allotment in the proportion of 5:7. In such cases, excess application money is transferred to allotment.
b) Convertible Debentures: These debentures are issued with an option to debenture holders to convert them fully or partly into shares after a fixed period. Where only a part of the debenture amount is convertible into equity shares, such debentures are known as ‘partly convertible debentures’. When full amount of convertible into equity shares, such debentures are known as ‘fully convertible debentures.’
c) Corporate Dividend Tax: Corporate Dividend Tax: As per the Finance Act, 1997 dividends paid or declared were subject to corporate dividend tax @ 10% with effect from 1st June, 1997. Such corporate dividend tax is deducted from Surplus sub-head in the Balance Sheet and it is also shown under the heading current liabilities as a provision till it is paid. But as per recent Finance Act, the rate of this tax is 15% plus 10% surcharge and cess of 2%. Total percentage of corporate dividend tax with surcharge and education cess comes to 17% approximately.
d) Purchase Consideration: Purchase Consideration refers to the consideration payable by the purchasing company to the vendor company for taking over the assets and liabilities of Vendor Company.
Accounting Standard – 14 defines the term purchase consideration as the “aggregate of the shares and other securities issued and the payment made in the form of ach or other assets by the transferee company to the shareholders of the transferor company”. Although, purchase consideration refers to total payment made by purchasing company to the shareholders of Vendor Company, its calculation could be in different methods, as explained below:
a. Lump sum method
b. Net Assets method
c. Net Payment Method
e) Minority Interest: When some of the shares in the subsidiary are held by outside shareholders they will be entitled to a proportionate share in the assets and liabilities of that company. The share of the outsider in the subsidiary is called minority interest.
Amount of minority interest is calculated by adding subsidiary company’s share in pre-acquisition profit, post-acquisition profit and in share capital of the company. Preference share capital to the extent of not purchased by holding company is also added with minority interest. In the consolidated balance sheet all the assets and liabilities of the subsidiary   are consolidated with assets and liabilities of the holding company and the minority interest representing the interest of the outsider in the subsidiary is shown as a liability.
f) Goodwill: In practice the holding company may pay more or less than the net worth of the subsidiary company. If the holding company feels that a company the shares of which it wants to acquire enjoys considerable reputation or exceptionary favourable factor it may pay more than the paid up value of shares or net assets.    
The excess of acquisition price over net assets represents goodwill or cost of control. If on the other hand the acquisition price is less than the paid up value of shares the difference is again to the holding company & is known as capital reserve.
3. (a) What is bonus share? What are the circumstances that warrant the issue of bonus shares? State the SEBI guidelines for issue of bonus shares.                                     2+5+7=14
Concept of Bonus Shares
The undistributed profits, after the necessary provisions for taxation, are the property of the equity shareholders and the same may be used by the company for distribution as dividends to them. But the sound financial policy demands that some of the profits at least must be ploughed back into the business. Thus when a company has accumulated substantial amount of past profits as might be found in the credit of capital reserves, revenue or general reserve of profit and loss account; it is desirable to bring the amount of issued share capital closer to the actual capital employed as represented by the net assets (Assets – Liabilities) of the company. This would reflect the true amount of capital invested by the shareholders in the company.
For example, the capital, which the shareholders have contributed for shares, is clearly visible since this was contributed in cash. But the capital, which they have contributed in the form of accumulated profits, remains unknown because this was not a direct contribution in cash.
In order to rectify these, accumulated profits in full or in part are capitalized, that is, accumulated profits are converted into shares. Shares are distributed free of charge and therefore are known as Bonus Shares, which are given to existing shareholders pro rata to their holdings. It may be added the bonus shares may be issued to make up the existing partly paid shares as fully paid.
The following circumstances warrant the issue of bonus shares:
(1) When a company has accumulated huge profits and reserves and it desires to capitalise these profits so as use them on permanent basis in the business.
(2) When the company is not able to declare higher rate of dividend on its capital, in spite of sufficient profits, due to restrictions imposed by the Government in regard to payment of dividend.
(3) When higher rate of dividend is not advisable for the reason that the shareholder may expect the same higher rate of dividend in future also.
(4) When the company cannot declare a cash bonus because of unsatisfactory cash position and its adverse effects on the working capital of the company.
(5) When there is a large difference in the nominal value and market value of the shares of the company.
SEBI GUIDELINES on the issue of bonus shares
There are no guidelines for issuing bonus shares by the private companies or unlisted public companies have been issued by the SEBI. However, the listed public companies for issuing bonus shares to the shareholders must comply with the guidelines issued by the SEBI. The requirements of the guidelines of SEBI are given below:-
a)  Right of FCD/PCD holders: No company shall pending the conversion of FCDs/PCDs issue any shares by way of bonus unless similar benefit is extended to the holders of FCDs/PCDs, through reservation of shares in proportion to such convertible part of FCDs/PCDs. The shares so reserved may be issued at the time of conversion of such debentures on the same terms on which the rights or bonus issues were made.
b)  Out of free reserves: the bonus issue shall be made out of free reserves built out of genuine profits or share premium collected in cash only.
c)  Revaluation of fixed assets: reserves created by revaluation of fixed assets should not be capitalised. If assets are subsequently sold and the profits are realized, such profits could be utilised for capitalization.
d)  Bonus issue not to be in lieu of dividend: The declaration of bonus issue, in lieu of dividend, should not be permitted.
e)  Fully paid shares: Bonus issue shall not be made, unless the partly paid shares, if any, existing are made fully paid up.
f)   No default in respect of deposit/debentures: the company should not have defaulted in payment of any interest or principal in respect its fixed deposits and interest on debentures or redemption of debentures.
g)  Statutory dues of the employees: the company should not be defaulted in payment of its statutory dues to the employees such as contribution to PF, gratuity, bonus, minimum wages, workmen’s compensation, retrenchment, payment to contract labour etc.
h) Implementation of proposal: the bonus issue shall be implemented within a period of 15 days after the date of approval of the BoD; it does not require the shareholders’ approval for capitalization of profits or reserves for making bonus issue as per the AoA of the company.
However, if the company is required to get the shareholders’ approval as per AoA of the company for capitalization of profits or reserves, the bonus issue shall be implemented within 2 months from the date of the meeting of the BoD.
i)   Provision in the AoA: the AoA of the company should provide the provision for the capitalization profits, i.e. it must authorize the bonus issue, if not, and steps should be taken to alter the AoA suitably.
j)   Authorised capital: consequent upon bonus issue if the subscribed or paid up capital of the company exceed the authorised capital, then a resolution shall be passed by the company at its GM for increasing its authorised capital to that extent.
k)  Certificate: A certificate duly signed by the issuer company and countersigned by the statutory auditor or the company secretary in practice to the effect that the provisions of the guidelines has been complied with shall be forwarded to the SEBI.

(b) Explain the various provisions of alternation of share capital as given in the Companies Act, 2013 with examples. 14
Ans: Alteration of Share Capital: Memorandum of Association contains capital clause of a company. Under Section 61 of the Companies Act 2013, a company, limited by shares, can alter this capital clause, if is permitted by (i) the Articles of Association of the company; and (ii) if a resolution to this effect is passed by the company in the general meeting. A company can alter share capital in any of the following ways:
(a) The company may increase its capital by issuing new shares.
(b) It may consolidate the whole or any part of its share capital into shares of larger amount.
(c) It may convert shares into stock or vice versa.
(d) It may sub-divide the whole or any part of its share capital into shares of smaller amount.
(e) It may cancel those shares which have not been taken up and reduce its capital accordingly.
To alter capital by any of the above modes require a resolution at a general meeting, but does not require confirmation by the National Company Law Tribunal. The company is required to give a notice to the Registrar within thirty days of alteration.
The accounting treatment of the above five types of capital alteration is discussed below.
(a) If the company has issued all of its authorised capital, then, for the purpose of raising fund by the issue of fresh shares, it will have to increase its authorised capital first. For increasing the authorised capital, the Capital clause of Memorandum of Association of the company is required to be altered and permission of S.E.B.I. is also required to be obtained.  No accounting entry is necessary for increasing authorised share capital. The company will have to observe the formalities prescribed under the Companies Act, 2013.
(b) The company may decide to change the shares of smaller denomination into larger denomination. This process is called consolidation of shares. On account of consolidation, the total amount of capital of the company will not change but the number of shares will decrease.
(c) A company, in order to alter its share capital, may convert all or any of its fully paid up shares into Stock or Stock into fully paid up shares. In case, shares are converted into Stock, the members get a part of Stock Capital in place of shares. By converting Shares into Stock, any amount of Stock Capital can be transferred to any other person.
(d) When the shares of a company are sub-divided in shares of small value, it is known as sub-division of shares. In sub-division of shares, the face value of a share is converted into smaller denomination from larger denomination. The total capital of the company remains unaffected by sub-division but the total number of shares increase.
(e) Cancellation of capital may take the following form:
(i) Cancellation of unissued capital; and
(ii) Cancellation of uncalled capital.
(i) Cancellation of unissued capital: Cancellation of unissued capital means cancellation of unissued shares by a company. It means that the part of the authorised capital which has not yet been issued to the public may be cancelled by the company.
(ii) Cancellation of uncalled capital: Cancellation of uncalled capital means cancellation of that part of the face value of the share which has not yet been called by the company.
