In this paper, we apply the single barrier strategy to optimize the dividend payment in the situation where there is a time lag d > 0 between decision and implementation. Using a Brownian motion with drift as the surplus process, we obtain the optimal barrier b* which maximises the expected present value of dividends. We also show that the longer the implementation delay, the smaller the optimal barrier will be.
