Can if the Company Secretary and Accountant agrees to it.
Converting company profits into Capital is a jail-able offence.

Get your Comsec to advise you.

1/ Director Remuneration is a company expense.
2/ Loans from Directors (can be capitalized subject to several conditions)
3/ Unclaimed remuneration must be reclassified as owing to directors or temporary loans.
4/ Immediate increase in Paid Up share capital is the norm provided that it does not exceed the Authorized Share Capital (Solution = increase Authorized Share Capital ) and a EGM conducted with full agreement by all shareholders.
5/ Profits (before Tax) can be Capitalized via other venues. For eg.. Special shares allocated for employees. However, the employees receiving it have to pay their personal income tax on the allocated shares. Some Companies treat it as Bonus Shares Issued.(Provided it does not exceed Authorized Share Capital). These are non voting rights issued share capital.
