Form 42 - management companies

I prepare accounts for a number of flat management companies. Form 42 is required when a share is issued to a director. However, is form 42 required if an existing shareholder becomes a director during the year - i.e. he acquired the share in an earlier year.

Thank you.

No provided that...
The reporting obligation exists where the individual acquires shares where the opportunity to acquire them was made available by reason of the employment or future employment.

As long as the shares were acquired before there was any prospect of employment/directorship this would not seem to be a reportable event.
