Dividend Distribution Tax (F.Y. 2009-10) should be calculated @ 16.995%.

Total dividend to be paid - Rs.50,00,000/-.

Therefore, total dividend distribution tax to be paid -
50,00,000 x 16.995 = 8,49,750/-.

At the time of finalisation of accounts, the Board of Directors propose the dividend. on the basis of such proposal of the Board, the provision for dividend and provision for dividend distribution tax are made in the balance sheet for the particular year.

The dividend gets confirmed by the members at the AGM and such dividend and DDT has to be paid within the stipulated period.
