  • MacKinlay v Arthur Young McClelland Moores & Company
    • House of Lords
    • 23 Noviembre 1989

    What he receives out of the partnership funds falls to be brought into account in ascertaining his share of the profits of the firm except in so far he can demonstrate that it represents a payment to him in reimbursement of sums expended by him on partnership purposes in the carrying on of the partnership business or practice — the example was given in the course of argument of the partner travelling to and staying in Edinburgh on the business of the firm — or a payment entirely collateral made to him otherwise than in his capacity as a partner (as in Heastie v. Veitch & Co.

  • Popat v Shonchhatra
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 25 Junio 1997

    While each partner has a proprietary interest in each and every asset, he has no entitlement to any specific asset and, in consequence, no right, without the consent of the other partners or partner, to require the whole or even a share of any particular asset to be vested in him.

  • Tiffin v Lester Aldridge LLP
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 11 Julio 2012

    That is because in law an individual cannot be an employee of himself. Nor can a partner in a partnership be an employee of the partnership, because it is equally not possible for an individual to be an employee of himself and his co-partners (see Cowell v. Quilter Goodison Co Ltd and Q.G. Management Services Ltd [1989] IRLR 392). The statutory hypothesis which the subsection requires in order to answer that question is that A and the other members of the LLP 'were partners in a partnership'.

  • Raymond Bieber and Others v Teathers Ltd ((in Liquidation))
    • Chancery Division
    • 09 Febrero 2012

    Fifth, such a trust is akin to a "retention of title" clause, enabling the recipient to have recourse to the payer's money for the particular purpose specified but without entrenching on the payer's property rights more than necessary to enable the purpose to be achieved. It is not as such a "purpose" trust of which the recipient is a trustee, the beneficial interest in the money reverting to the payer if the purpose is incapable of achievement.

  • R (on the application of De Silva and another) v Revenue and Customs Commissioners
    • Supreme Court
    • 15 Noviembre 2017

    Where relief has already been given in error, it would in my view be open to HMRC, in completing an enquiry, to amend the return (for example, under section 28A(2) TMA) by altering the amount chargeable to income tax for Year 2 in order to recover the sums which were wrongly paid as relief. Thirdly, section 59B(5) provides for payment of income tax which is payable as a result of an amendment of a self-assessment under section 28A on completion of an enquiry into a personal tax return.

  • Criterion Properties Plc v Stratford UK Properties LLC and Others
    • Chancery Division
    • 27 Marzo 2002

    In my judgment, therefore, what Belmont and Akindele decide for present purposes is that actual knowledge of circumstances which make the payment a misapplication is sufficient to bind the conscience of the recipient. On my analysis of the essential nature of the second supplementary agreement that, however, is not this case.

  • Austin Rover Group Ltd v Crouch Butler Savage Associates
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 25 Marzo 1986

    It is in the interests of both plaintiffs and the public that litigation should proceed with all diligence. It is in the interest of defendants that they should be able to know when claims against them are statute barred. This type of case, where writs are held for too long and service is attempted in haste within the last week of its validity, continues to arise far too frequently.
