    That said, if you can't be arsed to take the time to get it right (it's not rocket science), then more fool you.
    CTM20095 - ACT: General: Notes on company law aspects of dividends

    whilst it may be treated as a loan the actuality is that it was held on trust by the recipient. Certainly a mess.

    an issue is that a number of offences under the companies act may have een commited. Though quite who would have the right to complain and sanction for that is beyond me.

    There's a post on AccountingWeb where an accountant was just putting dividend payments as a non-tax item on monthly payslips with no paperwork, which is obviously problematic - linky.

    So, if some accountants are getting this so fundamentally wrong, you can see how it might lead to the perception that "monthly dividends are a bad thing".

    Things like that make we wince. Like when agencies / clients pay limited companies using the payroll, PAYE style payslips and a NT taxcode - seems to me to set the wrong tone. Very hard to talk your way out of disguised employment....
