Dividend distribution

You might be thinking, "It's my company, I can pay dividends if I want to." Absolutely, you can, but it’s important to proceed with caution. Paying dividends in a small business isn’t just about moving money; you need to ensure there are enough reserves in the company. Otherwise, the dividends could be deemed 'illegal.'
