ok, just to clarify. Because I think you have put my mind at ease but just to be sure.
so if my company "security guards for hire" makes 30K Pre tax profit
my "Chauffeur limited" company makes 150k pre tax profit
My pub group "events and bars limited" makes £800k PTP
Has the holding company made: 980K
and say I take 20k for myself, and pay tax on that. Just before the year end can I invest the 950K back into "events and bars limited" showing the holding company to only have made £10k profit?
