Management Glossary

  Search Results: dividend
A payment from a corporation to its shareholders. The payment represents a distribution of the company's profits to its owners and is made with after-tax dollars. (i.e., dividend payments are from profits on which the corporation has already paid taxes. Dividends are, therefore, not deductable from profits when calculating taxable profit.)
