The second issue was whether sub-funds and loan from sub-funds in respect of the individual Appellants were subject to Schedule E income tax using, amongst other things, the principles described in W T Ramsay v. IRC and MacNiven v. Westmoreland Investments Limited. The Special Commissioners decided in favour of the taxpayers on both points.Timothy Brennan KC and Hugh McKay appeared for the Respondents
