XYZ Ltd. invited applications for 40,000 equity shares of Rs.100 each at a discount of 6%. The amount was payable as follows:

On Application and Allotment - Rs.90 per share

On First and Final call - the balance amount.

Applications for 60,000 shares were received. Applications for 10,000 shares were rejected and shares were allotted on pro-rata basis to remaining applicants. Excess application money received on application and allotment was adjusted towards sums due on first and final call. The calls were made. A shareholder, who applied for 50 share, failed to pay the first and final call money. His shares were forfeited. All the forfeited shares were re-issued at Rs.97 per share fully paid up.

Important Note: This question can't be solved further because the shar ehold er has already paid excess amount than required on first and final call as he has applied for 50 shares and 40 shares are allotted to him `[40000/50000xx50=40]`

Calculation of excess amount received from him

Amount received =50 × 90                                          = Rs.4,500

     Less: Amount that is to be received= 40 × 90           = Rs.3,600   

Excess money received                                                = Rs.900

Amount due on first and final call = 40 x 4 = Rs.160

Now, he has already paid the amount of its 900 in excess at the time of application and allotment. Thus, forfeiture is not possible in this case.

Thus, this question has incomplete or wrong information, hence, cannot be solved fully.


Amount paid by 50,000 shares                         = Rs.45,00,000

   Less: Amount that is required to be paid         = Rs.36,00,000   

Excess Application money received                   =   Rs.9,00,000

    Less: Amount due on first and final call          =   Rs.1,60,000   

Amount refunded through bank                         =   Rs.7,40,000

Add: Amount to be refunded                             =   Rs.9,00,000   

Total                                                               =  Rs.16,40,000
