We have a company which holds land and if all goes well will begin a subdivision in the next few years. Shares are held in mine and my husbands name. (1 A ordinary and 1 B ordinary) I would like to issue a share each to my teenage children so profits can be distributed to them when they are adults. I want the company to be able to distribute differing amounts of dividends over the years. Can we distribute differing dividends to the different class of shares? and what a tax implications would there to be to issuing new shares. (Stamp duty etc (Qld)) Will they have to purchase their shares with cash or can the company just issue them both a share each. Was about to email our accountant over this but thought I'd get some opinions first. This is the first time I have been on this site.
