Capital redemption reserve fund


When a company redeems preference shares, a sum equal to the shares' nominal value redeemed is transferred to this fund. The fund is treated as part of the paid-up capital of the company and cannot be used for dividends. The fund can, however, be used to pay up bonus shares.
