@Brucanna I was browsing some of my old posts as I sometimes had ideas in the past that I never got around to implementing and I want to get more clarification on a point you made some years back.
You mentioned “In fact I would prefer net profit before tax/dividends and net profit after tax/dividends so you can cater for dividends also. Noting that this process only applies to corporations so some sort of corporation preference setting would be required.”
What do you hope to achieve here as Dividends are not on the Profit and Loss Statement at all. I am just thinking that one of my problems is that I am finding it hard to keep track of how much I am paying out in dividends each year as its all under the BS not in profit and loss reports and the fact that I have no clear distinction between allocated and actually paid out Dividends. Your suggestion of having the Corporation Tax and Dividends together makes sense for keeping track of cashflow over the years.
However, I don’t know how your plan would work as dividends doesn’t go on profit and loss.
