LEGAL REASONING


Principle: An incorporated company under the Companies Act has a separate legal entity and corporate liability.
Factual Situation: Certain persons transferred a tea estate to an incorporated company and claimed exemptions from “ad valorem” duty on the ground that they themselves were shareholders in the company.

Decision:
(a) The shareholders are liable to pay as the company is a separate legal person.
(b) The shareholders are not liable to pay since it is a transfer from them in one name to themselves under another name.
(c) The shareholders are liable because everybody has to pay duty on a transfer or conveyance.
(d) The shareholders are not liable to pay, but the company would pay on their behalf.


The answer is (a)
