Show profit available for distribution on Tax Summary

Hi Glenn

As i mentioned in the post related to tax summary, i am very pleased with the feature.

There was sort of similar feature request that i did few months ago:

The tax report covers most of the things that you will find in a detailed profit and loss account.
However, i feel there is one feature that is really needed is some sort of a report that would tell a company director how much profit is available for distribution. Technically i can’t suggest that you add this to the tax summary (as tax summary is purely to calculate tax), but this is the next step - if it is possible to somehow link the balance sitting in the dividend paid account, which then minus itself from the Net profit and estimate corporate tax due.

Something like this:

Net profit 500
Est Corporate tax -100
Profit after tax 400
Dividends paid -200
Profit available for distribution 200

Maybe you could add another report just below the tax summary to do the above calculation?

it will be a handy feature to have,

Many thanks in advance for this

I am going to be away on leave until the 14th July. I may be able to take a look on my return, any larger improvements to the CT report will likely take place later in the year as we have some other important projects were committed to.

Hi Glenn, just wondering if you have had a chance to look into this?

Many thanks

Not yet but I doubt it will be a huge job and it’s certainly something that would be useful to see.

For now I’ve moved it into the short term planner so we should have that ready in 3-4 weeks.

Hi Glenn

This is probably taking longer than anticipated… any idea yet when we could see this? :smile:


Admittedly we did start this but ran into a number of technical problems, mostly around calculating profit/loss brought forward. We will likely revisit this in the new year.
