Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
There is no Capital Gains Tax (CGT) liability on transfer as Incorporation Relief applies which postpones CGT until you ultimately dispose of your shares. Any profits made by the company will be subject to Corporation Tax (CT). Any repayment of Directors' Loans would be outside the scope of UK taxation unless interest is involved.
Companies are not subject to the CGT regime, all such transactions pass through the trading account of the company and are exposed to CT.
You have, as an individual, a non cumulative Annual Exempt Amount (AEA), currently 12K, to offset any gains whilst a company has no such concession. It may therefore be more advantageous tax wise for you to personally dispose.
You can as a director borrow from your company, but any such borrowings must be repaid within 9 months of the end of the company's accounting period to avoid horrendous tax consequences.
