The Director Debit Loan Account Dilemma

When to debit, when to expense, and when to declare as a dividend.

A practical review of debit loan accounts from a liquidation perspective.

But what happens when a company is placed into liquidation before the loan account has been recharacterized?

Find out why the role of the tax accountant and legal advisor is becoming ever so important in managing client risk.
