Call

No Liability (N.L.) and sometimes Limited Liability (Ltd.) companies have shares that are not fully paid. A call may be made for the payment of part, or all, of this outstanding capital. Holders of shares in N.L. companies may choose not to pay the call and forfeit their shares, hence the name No Liability. Holders of shares in Limited Liability companies cannot forfeit the shares and are legally obliged to pay a call. See contributing share.
