Thanks for your question
Did you or the company take £22K - and if the company what element of that £22K did you take out - as tax credit office are interested on what you actually received in income as an individual (so salary or dividends for the limited company plus any other income)
Thanks for your response
Then I am afraid there is nothing you can do as the payments have been made to you and the dividend payment will have been recorded in the company minutes as the payment you had made from the profits for the year.
I should also point out that the tax credit office will treat the dividend as 24,444 (as they retain the 10% tax credit) and the £22k is merely the net amount.
And therefore depending on your circumstances - you may have too much income to remain eligible but there is no changing that fact
