"Opgevraagd deel van een kapitaal": called-up portion of capital or simply share capital called up.
"Presentatiegeld" sounds very odd Karin. Are you quite sure it shouldn't be "presentiegeld"? If so, that translates as attendance fee.

Just to add to what the others have written:
statutenwijziging = amendment to the articles of association
I think Jarry is right about presentatiegeld = but should it not be prestatiegeld, which is, as the first person says, performance-related pay.
Having seen all your questions, I would advise that you get hold of a copy of Voeten & Van den End's 'Bank- en Verzekeringslexicon', which would have answered virtually all these queries for you (unless of course you don't usually do financial texts!)
