Capital Reserve- Reserve created by the capital surpluses( distinguished from the revenue surplus) of an organisation . Examples:
Surplus resulting from revaluation of assets of the firm to its current market value;Surplus resulting from business purchase-the value of assets being more than the consideration paid, Long term capital gains resulting from transfer of capital assets, surplus amount on forfeiture of shares,etc., are also examples of capital reserves.
Reserve Capital- Part of the authorized capital of a firm which has not yet been called up and is available for drawing in case of need.
It can be noted while the former is as a result of surpluses resulting from assets, the latter is contributory in nature.
