COVID-19 - Year end reporting and paying dividends: Insolvency considerations in uncertain times

Bartier Perry is pleased to join forces with BRI Ferrier to present this seminar on directors’ duties surrounding financial information provided to and considered by companies and their boards of directors, with a particular focus on the forecasting and modelling which should be undertaken before declaring and paying dividends during the COVID-19 era.

During this webinar, we will focus on:

  • Directors’ obligations in declaring and paying dividends.

  • Practical considerations for directors to avoid the potential consequences of an improperly paid or declared dividend and reduce their risk of personal liability.

  • How forecasting techniques and approaches are evolving to better inform directors’ decisions about dividends in an environment of heightened risk and uncertainty.

  • Insights from a Liquidation perspective on dividends paid in situations of distress and subsequent collapse.
