I wish to know whether a trustee or a testamentary executor is entitled to payment from the funds of a trust for his services. I have been entrusted with the task of distribution of funds to a beneficiary and as this task is outside my normal official duties I have been told I will get paid extra for this as it would be done outside business hours.
