The ‘corporate veil’ surrounds the company of Murphy & Co Ltd and prevents outsiders challenging the operation of the company.However, although the principle of separation is central to company law, there are a number of situations when the company and its members can be identified together and treated as the same.Mr Salomon owned 20,000 £1 shares, and his wife and five children owned one share each.Some years later the company went into liquidation, and Mr Salomon claimed to be entitled to be paid first as a secured debenture holder.

In this case, Mr Salomon was the major shareholder, a director, an employee and a creditor of the company he created.

Once a company or corporation is formed, the business which is carried on by the such company or corporation is the business of that company or corporation and is not the business of the citizens who get the company or corporation incorporated and the rights of the incorporated body must be judges on that footing and cannot be judged on the assumption that they are the rights attributed to the business of individual citizens.

The court held that the income-tax authorities were entitled to pierce the veil of corporate entity and to look at the reality of the transaction to examine whether the corporate entity was being used for tax evasion.

These are the exceptions to the rule in Salomon’s Case, when the corporate veil is lifted and the reality of the situation is examined.

It was held that As soon as citizens form a company, the rights guaranteed to them by article 19(1)c has been exercised and no restraint has been placed on the right and no infringement of that right is made.

This separation of a company from its members was established in the House of Lords in the famous case. Salomon had a boot manufacturing business which he decided to incorporate into a private limited company.
