£5000 salary and dividends still??

My query basically just centres on whether a lot of directors are still having this low salary with regular dividends. I believe that this still seems to be favourable from a tax point of view for profits under £300k but just concerned about the commerciality of a low salary. Is this an area that the Revenue could argue is too low and stipulate that salary must be higher?

Thanks for any help
