Hi guys,

I wonder if someone can give me abit of guidance with regards to dividends received?

£400 dividends received.

What is the Gross amount of these dividends???

Now I know that dividends are received Net and therefore we need to Gross them up.

So I calculated 400/100*90 = £444.44 as the Gross amount.

But the correct answer is £440. 10% of the £400 would give me £40 then add that to the £400 to get £440 but I though that you had to do the 100/90 calculation?

Please help, very confused

13So I had given an answer of £444.44 (which was wrong).

The available options from the dropdown menu were: 270, 350, 356.56, 360, 440, 444.44, 450 & 530

1,023That's odd. I def would've put £444.44. Maybe someone else can tell us why we're wrong!

13I know I'd love to know where I'm going wrong, have my resit on Tuesday so trying to get my head around all the areas that I did not meet. :001_smile:

1,023Hope you get an answer re above!

13Mines was on incorrect returns.

Errors due to lack of reasonable care, deliberate and concealed etc....
