Thank you for your question..
If the company is taking over a business as a going concern and it gives rise to a payment for goodwill to the sole trader, this would be chargeable to capital gains tax. Gains annual allowance against it is available.
The consideration would be treated as director's loan until such time it is paid in full.
I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
