Default Salary query? Spouse Renewal 2.5 years

Hi all,

My spouse's came to the UK on Feb 2017 via spouse visa. The renewal is 2.5 years later (so late 2019) - Correct me if im wrong.

My question relates to the salary. Currently i am in a permanent position earning above the 18k threshold. Ill be starting a new 6 month rolling contract next month and ill be earning a significant amount.

My accountant suggested paying my self in dividends for tax reasons. I understand ill need to provide payslips showing my income. But as a director of my company, ill be paying myself dividends.

How much income do i need to show when i pay my self? Can i pay my self 25k in dividends and show that in my application?

Also, it the form also suggests that if i have 16,000 in my savings, that should be sufficient as well? Does the 16,000 need to be in my savings account for a certain period prior to the application?
