Working the Enquiry: Tax Cases: Woodrow (Executor of Charles D Woodrow) v Whalley 42TC249

Additional assessments were raised on a farmer for 11 years on his profits and untaxed income. The Commissioners found there had been undisclosed profits and the High Court upheld their findings with the exception of two sums paid into Mrs Woodrow’s deposit account.
