The court found that, the appellant company successfully negotiated the package with the client and sold it to the respondent. That the respondents signed the policy documents, and then collected the money in an attempt to reduce the appellant’s commission. The cover flowed from the appellant’s initial efforts and it was therefore entitled to full commission.
Regarding the percentage of commission, it was found that the rate at 20% was too high, the court thus allowed a commission at the rate of 12% on the full insured sum.
Therefore, the appeal was allowed, judgment and decree of the High Court were set aside, interest awarded and costs of the appeal to the appellant.
