Discount on issue of debentures is ____________.


ANSWER

Capital loss


SOLUTION
 Capital Loss :-

A capital loss is the loss incurred when a capital asset, such as an investment or real estate, decreases in value. This loss is not realized until the asset is sold for a price that is lower than the original purchase price. 
Capital losses are generally tax deductible, but only when they are realized. That is, they only become deductible when the asset is actually sold (unless the stock is legally deemed worthless). Until that point, any losses are considered unrealized and are not deductible. 
The IRS considers nearly every asset owned by individuals and companies as capital assets and thus subject to capital gains taxes and capital loss deductions.
