The will of B Dark, who died on 31 March of the previous income year, provides that after payments of debts and legacies the residue of the estate is to be held in trust and the income applied as follows:

  • an annuity of $11,000 to be paid to the widow on 1 June each year. If in any year the income is insufficient to meet the annuity, the deficiency is to be met out of the capital of the estate;
  • the remaining income to be accumulated and distributed to such of the children as attain the age of 25 years;
  • at the discretion of the trustees, to be exercised as they think fit, payments may be made for the maintenance, education and advancement of the children, such payments to be made out of the share of income to which each child is contingently entitled while under the age of 25 years. There are two children of the deceased: Maxine, aged 12 and a full-time student, and Judy, who is married and aged 22. The deceased was a solicitor whose taxable income has always been calculated on a cash basis.
