Acting Against the Best Interest of the Business

Shareholders typically have a legally binding duty to act in the company’s best interest. This is called fiduciary duty, and when that duty is violated or breached, serious legal action may be taken against that party. Self dealing is the process of putting one’s personal gain ahead of the business’s interest, and is a common practice among many businesses. Common types of self dealing used by a person of influence or high position, such as a shareholder or business owner, include the following, according to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS):

  • Leasing property;
  • Sales, exchange,
  • Lending money or credit extensions;
  • Providing goods, services, or facilities;
  • Compensation or reimbursements;
  • Transferring foundation assets or income to a disqualified person, or for the benefit of a disqualified person;
  • Paying government officials; and
  • Other types of misappropriation of funds;

Such actions that go against the benefit of the business are conflicts of interest, and will never be taken lightly. Depending on the types of actions taken, the party responsible may actually be prosecuted in state or federal court on top of any civil action.
