Will the society pay interest on shares?

The society may use its property and profits only to promote its objects. The society will not pay members any dividend, bonus or other share in profits. However, the Society can pay interest on shares. The directors will set the rate of interest. In setting the rate, the society’s directors will take particular account of the society’s intention to provide an opportunity for the biodynamic, organic, low carbon community to contribute financially to other biodynamic, organic, sustainable communities, with the expectation of a social dividend, rather than a personal financial reward.
