What Is Paid-In Capital?

Paid-in capital (PIC) is the amount of capital investors have "paid in" to a corporation by purchasing shares in exchange for equity.

A paid-in capital account does not show the individual contributions of each investor, just the total amount provided by all investors.

Primary Market

The primary market is the part of the capital market that issues new securities. It is through the primary market that people invest in a corporation by purchasing stock, raising the corporation's PIC figure.

Stock purchased in the open market from other stockholders (secondary market) does not affect paid-in capital.

Additional Paid-In Capital

Paid-in capital can also refer to a balance sheet entry, often listed under stockholder's equity. Additional paid-in capital (APIC) is also known as

Pre-Money Valuation: What Is It?

Pre-money valuation (PMV) is the initial value of a company before any type of investment. The capital a business receives after its pre-money valuation is called post-money valuation.

Why Is Pre-Money Evaluation Important?

  • PMV determines the value of company shares.
  • Through PMV, an investor can determine the value of a company's shares.
  • Through PMV, anyone can calculate the total value of a company.
  • Using PMV, the parties involved with an investment can determine how much of the company each party controls after the investment.

How Pre-Money Evaluation Works

Think of PMV as a simple calculation that investors use to weigh the value of becoming a shareholder. A company with a PMV of $10 million that has 1 million shares has value of $10 per share. When an angel investor offers to add $5 million more, the company's worth increases 50 percent to $15 millio

Double Taxation

Double Taxation: What Is It?

Double taxation is when income or profits are taxed twice. It is usually used in reference to when income taxes are paid twice. This may happen when profit is taxed on the corporate level and then again as income on the personal level. Although this situation can appear unfair, it arises because a corporation is considered a separate legal entity from its shareholders.

There are some who argue that double taxation is necessary to prevent wealthy individuals from avoiding taxes by paying their salaries via company dividends received from owning stock. Others argue that since the US corporate income rate is 39.1 percent, the highest in the developed world, double taxation stifles investment and provides incentives for corporations t
