During the year, the company paid a final divided of 240,000 in respect of the year ended 31st March 2007; this was in addition to the interim dividend paid 1st September 2007 in respect of the year ended 31 March 2008.

Dividend received is irrelevant to your question – I think. That will be shown as investment income in the I/S
Dividend PAID will be in the TB as a debit – presumably it’s the 390 in your question.
The proposed dividend of 270? Did the directors declare this BEFORE the year end? If not, it will be shown as a non-adjusting subsequent event.
If they DID declare BEFORE the year end, it needs to be accrued as a current liability. The debit will be in the Statement of changes in Equity as an appropriation of this year’s profits together with the 390 interim dividend already paid.
