Private Company Dividends - A Round Up
Using real life examples, this live broadcast session will explore the problematic area of declaring dividends, including the impact of COVID-19 on declaring dividends, and possible changes to the dividend framework proposed by the government’s response to its Insolvency and Corporate Governance consultation.
This session is suitable for those new to dividends but also for those in need of a refresher and particularly those at ‘the coalface’ dealing with the practical difficulties associated with small owner-managed businesses.
Note: this session only covers legal issues, not accounting or tax issues.
