CGT and shares at less than market value

DottieDottie Feels At HomeRegistered Posts: 99
A company director bought shares in his company at less than the market value in 2004. Tax and NIC was paid on the difference between what he paid and the market value. Shares sold in August 2012. For CGT purposes is the cost of the shares the market value and not what he actually paid for the shares?
Thank you!

    Shouldn't have paid NIC though if it was an unquoted company, ie shares not readily convertible..........
