Noted thank you , I am working on your answer and I will get back to you soon. Thank you
Thank you for your patience, due to the high volume of questions today please accept my apology for taking time to respond back to you .
To pay a dividend, you must:
hold a directors’ meeting to ‘declare’ the dividend
keep minutes of the meeting, even if you’re the only director
For each dividend payment the company makes, you must write up a dividend voucher showing the:
names of the shareholders being paid a dividend
amount of the dividend
You must give a copy of the voucher to recipients of the dividend and keep a copy for your company’s records.
I hope this answers your question.
All the best
