George and Loochin ( Executors of Stedman, Deceased) v The Commissioners of Inland Revenue: CA 5 Dec 2003

The taxpayers appealed against a decision allowing an appeal by the respondents, that shares in a company which owned land from which it ran a residential caravan park, were shares in a business consisting wholly or mainly of making investments, and that accordingly the transfer did not attract exemption.
Held: The finding of the Commissioners was in essence a finding of fact and unappealable. The divisional court should not have reversed the finding, and the the commissioners’ decision was re-instated. The business incoprorated both service and investment elements.
