I act for a "one man band" limited company. The sole director and shareholder wants to take a part of the profits as dividend. I have been told that it is necessary for a formal directors meeting to be convened even though there would be only one person present who is also the sole member of the company. My questions are
Is this correct (it seems totally pointless not to say ridiculous to have to hold a meeting with yourself in order to agree to pay yourself a dividend)?
Could a blanket minute be passed covering all future dividend payments or would a minute be needed each time a dividend is paid?
Can anyone point me in the direction of where I might find a proforma minute for this situation if I need one?
Hypothetically - Would it be legal to pass a minute after the event ratifying the payment of a dividend at some date in the past.
