What are dividends and how are they issued?

Dividends are a distribution of the profits of a corporation. The board of directors will determine (with the help of the corporate accountants) the amount of dividends that should be issued to the shareholders. A “dividend resolution” is then prepared and approved by the board of directors before the distribution is made to the shareholders.
