I take a salary in one of my businsess can I contunie to do this? How do I take out dividends? is this sent to the holding compnay then I take it from there?

Within a company group profits and losses and losses can be moved upwards, downwards and sideways to reduce overall profits. You can continud to take a salary from one of them, but this must be paid through PAYE channels. The first 2K of dividends are tax free in your hands.
