It covers important concepts such as equity or share capital, authorised capital, issued and paid-up capital, non-voting equity share capital, reduction of capital, limited liability, preference share capital, share premium, free reserves, bonus shares, capital reserve, debentures, term loans, loans from friends and relatives, loans from subsidiaries, and modern financial instruments.
