There are different types of remuneration that can be considered, including salaries for working employees and bonuses or dividends for owners.
The big question we hear is often about how much to pay. It is often hard to balance between a fair salary for active and non-active members of the family. We hear stories about families working hard to pay dividends to siblings who don’t contribute to the business. We also hear about family members receiving a higher than market rate salary so as to ensure a comfortable lifestyle.
