What is the Share Capital?


shareholdersA company’s share capital is the total value of shares that it has issued to its shareholders. So, if a company has issued one share worth £1, the share capital would be £1. If a company has issued three shares worth £2 the share capital would be £6. The number of shareholders is irrelevant.

Number of Shares × Value per Share = Share Capital
