The example you are using relates to 2014/15

Jules's taxable income is well into the higher rate band.
There is a 10% tax credit on the £960 dividend, so he needs to pay another 22.5%
960x22.5%=£216

Joey's total taxable income is 30,000+2,300=£32,300
This is £435 above the basic rate limit of £31,865
20% was deducted at source, so he needs to pay another 20%
435x20%=£87

There is a slightly easier example of this in the practice exam at:
