What Makes Accountor CPA the Best Choice In Accounting for Cumulative Preferred Dividends?

Do you need help with your accounting for preferred stock dividends? With many professional accounting firms in Canada, what makes Accountor CPA stand out? Finding an expert who knows Canadian tax laws for these proceeds can be tricky. Thankfully, Accountor CPA’s professionals understand provincial and federal taxation guidelines.

Dividends can vary in monetary type. However, you don’t have to worry about keeping track of each share. Accountor CPA's team of specialists supports clients needing investment bookkeeping, such as:

  1. Accounting for cash dividends
  2. Accounting for cumulative preferred dividends
  3. Accounting for deemed dividend
  4. Accounting for dividends declared but not paid
  5. Accounting for intercompany dividends

1. Accounting for Cash Dividends

Cash dividends are monetary payouts to a shareholder. These cash payments are from a corporation’s earnings or accumulated profits. They are an excellent choice for individuals who want a residual income. Talk to our specialists today about your accounting for cash dividends in Canada.

2. Accounting for Cumulative Preferred Dividends

Cumulative preferred dividends occur for shareholders regardless of a corporation’s profitability. Organizations that receive these cumulative payouts should have a professional accountant manage their books. There could be adjustments to the arrears, which calls for expert bookkeeping. Call Accountor CPA today for an effective accounting solution for your cumulative preferred dividends.

3. Accounting for Deemed Dividend

Some investment situations will call for deemed dividends. When an investor receives a significant amount in advance or as a loan, it falls under the deemed dividend classification. Accountor CPA can manage your accounting for withholding tax on dividends received when this happens.

4. Accounting for Dividends Declared But Not Paid

When a corporation declares dividends but has yet to pay them, it is known as accrued dividends. The accounting for dividends declared but not paid involves tracking these liabilities until distributed to shareholders. Companies that declare dividends but wait to pay them out need proper bookkeeping procedures. Then, if unpaid dividends become unclaimed, the accountant can handle them accordingly.

5. Accounting for Intercompany Dividends

Intercompany dividends consist of investments of one company paid out to another organization. This circumstance often occurs with holding companies and subsidiary organizations. The taxation rate will differ when handling accounting for intercompany dividends. Talk to one of our experienced bookkeepers about your existing intercompany dividends today.
