Opinions on allocation of profit carried forward to dividends
AbstractIn our opinion, the allocation of profits carried forward to dividends complies with the legal requirements in this field, as long as these results arise from current profits of previous financial years. However, an adverse aspect for companies is related to taxation of this subsequent distribution, due to the risk that tax authorities might reclassify this operation and, implicitly, apply penalties for late payment of dividends, starting with the 1st of January of the financial year following the one in which the carry forward of the profits of the previous financial year has been approved, and until the payment of related tax.
