Just had to start some trusts accounts off for some old trusts. Set the trustees a task to locate the missing £10 notes used to create the trusts so that I could balance off the trust balance sheets.
The trustees havc come back having hit a brick wall (they have better things to do, actually).
Not really that bothered because after up to 80 or 125 years I am sure the £10 will be a mere flea-bite. Just inquisitive!
All I know is that the tenner is passed across the solicitor's table, he pockets the £10, and the trust is created.
But the big (actually little) question is, where do all these £10 notes end up?
Client account (maybe sometimes - but for a mere £10?). Pocket money? Train ticket home? Kids pocket money? Black hole? Lap dancer? The list is possibly endless.
