Authorized stock has not necessarily been issued. The incorporating state authorizes the corporation to issue a certain number of shares of stock. All shares of a company are authorized... not all are issued.

Authorized stock becomes liability only once it is issued which is called issued capital and authorized capital is just there as an statement to inform the maximum amount of issued share capital.

Issued shares(I) are shares of stock that have been sold to investors. It includes both outstanding shares(O) and Treasury shares(T). Thus, I = O+T Outstanding shares(O) are shares of stock currently owned by the shareholders.

The simplest answer is that 'stock' are the physical items on the shelves. A stock sheet is a list of those items.

Issued Shares: The number of shares that has ever been sold to and held by the shareholders of a company. Includes stock that has been repurchased by the company. Does NOT include shares that have been retired.Outstanding Shares: Stock currently held by investors. Does NOT include stock that has been repurchased by the company..If either no shares have ever been repurchased or if all repurchased shares have been retired then Outstanding shares = Issued Shares.
