    A Pty Ltd company has made a dividend payment to a director who is also an employee. Should this be done as payroll payment and deduct PAYG or can the whole amount go to the director and he include it on his personal tax return? Can he claim franking credits on his personal tax return if company has paid company tax?

    appreciate any comments

    If its a dividend payment it does not appear on PAYG statements and not included on payroll

    and yes like any other shareholder receiving a dividend should be declared in his personal return and would be allowed a franking credit

    Just need to be certain it is a dividend and not fees or salary

    Note dividends can be assessable for workers comp if paid to working directors who are not paid a reasonable salary

    If you need any clarification or act references please feel free to Pm me
