Addendum No. 2
- 33A. In Hayden the Federal Court considered whether interest incurred by an Executor on borrowings that were used to discharge an obligation of the deceased estate was deductible under subsection 51(1). The fact that the borrowing of funds permitted income producing assets to remain as part of the estate so that the income stream to the estate was not diminished, did not bring the interest of the borrowings within a loss or outgoing under subsection 51(1).
