inter-corporate dividends

Definition

The share of profits paid from one company to another in an inter-corporate relationship in the form of a dividend. Since the 1930s, inter-corporate dividends have been subject to double, or multiple taxation as a way to discourage pyramid corporate structures that benefit controlling shareholders at the top of the pyramid.
