Example text

As far as the payment of stamp duty is concerned, however, the later case of Pariny (Hatfield) Ltd v IRC (1997) suggests that, irrespective of whether writing is actually needed, any subsequent writing will still attract duty. Clearly, the dichotomy of Oughtred (writing not needed, but ad valorem duty still payable) has been maintained. Finally, we come to those cases where dealings with existing equitable interests under a trust clearly do not amount to a ‘disposition’ within s 53(1)(c) of the LPA and, therefore, do not require writing to be carried into effect.

As Billy is the sole beneficiary under the Tulip Trust, we can assume that he is absolutely entitled to the shares and does, in fact, have power to dispose of his equitable interests in this way. However, dispositions of subsisting equitable interests may be made only if they are in writing, or else they will be void and the interest will remain with the original beneficiary (s 53(1)(c) of the LPA 1925). Moreover, it is clear from Grey v IRC (1960) that a direction to a trustee by the equitable owner to hold on trust for a third person (here Frederick) does, in principle, amount to a disposition within s 53(1)(c) and must be made in writing.
