New Company and Club with Paypal Account

I have been asked to prepare accounts for a limited company for its first year of trade. It has modest income from membership subscriptions and more substantial income via transfers into the company bank account from a paypal account that one of the directors has access to. The paypal account was set up some time before the company incorporated and is used  by a club (that bears the same name as the company) but which existed before the company came along. The director is a founder of the club which is run by an ad-hoc committee and probably has no written constitution. The committe and club members are, to my knowledge unaware that some of the business is now being conducted through a limited company, part owned by this director. 

The director insists that the paypal account - through which other receipts and payments are also made is an account in the company's ownership- or should become so.

My view is money transferred into the company via paypal is trading income and any internal paypal transactions form no part of the company accounts.

Although I don't think there is any untoward activity, Is there also a potential MLR issue?

The directors are not the issue
