When shares are issued at a price equal to their face value it is termed as shares issued at par. When issue price of a share is more than its face value, it is known as shares issued at a premium. If issue price of a share is less than its face value, it is called as shares issued at a discount.
A company issues its shares at a premium when the price at which it sells the shares is higher than their par value. … The amount of the premium is the difference between the par value and the selling price. If shares do not have a par value, then there is no premium.
(iv) the shares to be issued at a discount are issued within two months after the date on which the issue is sanctioned by the 3 Company Law Board] or within such extended time as the 3 Company Law Board] may allow.
The issue of shares at a discount means the issue of the shares at a price less than the face value of the share. For example, if a company issues share of Rs. 100 at Rs. 90, then Rs. 10 (i.e. Rs 100—90) is the amount of discount.
What do you mean by issued at par?
When a company issues a new bond, if it receives the face value of the security the bond is said to have been issued at par. If the issuer receives less than the face value for the security, it is issued at a discount.
