First liquidation reserves can be paid out in 2020 at an advantageous rate of 5%! Dividends are generally taxed at 30%. However, a small company can also create so-called "liquidation reserves". Just like a normal reserve, a liquidation reserve is an internal "savings bank" for the shareholder(s). This liquidation reserve can be built up annually with the profit of the financial year.
