Forfeiture Of Shares (II PUC And CBSE Accountancy)

The term Forfeiture of Shares refers to Cancellation of Shares by the Company. The company decides to cancel/forfeit the shares of a member/shareholder as, the shareholder must not have responded to the payment calls of the company. The company, however, has to give a fourteen days notice to the shareholder before going for the Forfeiture of shares.
It should be noted that the company does not refund the amount already paid by the shareholder in the earlier stages (say for example application money) in case of the Forfeiture of the shares held by that shareholder.
The following journal entry is passed during the Forfeiture:
Share Capital A/c......Dr.
     To Forfeited Shares A/c.
     To Share Allotment A/c.
     To Share Call A/c.
Here, the amount already paid by the shareholder say in Application Stage is also forfeited and goes to 'Forfeited Shares A/c'. The above example assumes that the concerned shareholder has not paid the allotment money and calls money.
