Hello,
I am an experienced legal advisor and I am happy to answer your question.A company is it's own legal entity. It can hold shares etc in its own name. If the company buys the shares then it owns them. This is very common place and is not an issue. The profits made should be fed back into the company.Happy to answer follow ups.Kind regards

Thank you. If at some point in the future the shares need to be transferred out of the company to a Director - what is the process?
Then technically the director ought to buy the shares from the company. You have to treat the company like its own legal entity, almost as it were a person.
