Hi Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. This is possible but in order to declare dividends for one share and not another you need to have two classes of share. The shares should say that they are entitled to participate in dividend distribution but not on an equal basis. You need to pass a special resolution reclassifying the shares as A shares and B Shares and then file the change at Companies House. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards AJ

Hi, I am afraid we are not allowed to draft documents on this site. Do you have an accountant? They should be able to make these filings for you. Kind regards AJ
