u ppl will find these enrtries in all Pk writers for rights issue
but they doesn't make sense

the only entry should be

crord. share capital
share premium

which one is correct

Right issue are shares but the ownership of these shares is transferred to the shareholders before handing these over to them.
When the ownership is transferred, we say that the right is transferred (that's why they are called right issue) and the first entry is passed. Rights are issued to the all share holders (it is pre decided in AGM i.e. 5 rights for 1 already held etc). The second entry is passed when shareholders pay for them. As the shares (Rights) are issued at a low price so the difference is considered as BONUS and the third entry is passed.

You have another topic of Right issue. If u have not checked it then check it please. U may find your answer. Word "Right" is also explained there.

Hi...the first group of entries are from Sohail Afzal's and M.A Ghani's bookz...and i couldn't understand where we will close the
"bonus share dividend account"...
Aur waisay bhi foreign authors aur some of Pk authors do not follow these accounting entries...the only correct entry is

Crshare capital
Crshare premium
