    I know the answer to above is yes but I mean if I as a director use company profits to invest in blue chip stocks would the company be liable for CGT on dividends?

    Or is it possible for the ltd company to buy and gift the shares / dividends to a director without “The Man” having another dip into my hard earned

    Or is it simply the case where I should take the tax hit by drawing out as salary or bonus and then using the leftover to invest?

    CGT applies to capital gains, typically when an asset is sold. Dividends are subject to dividends withholding tax an then income tax and PRSI in the usual manner.

    What do your articles of association say about acquiring shares in other companies.
