Pre-Budget Report 2008 - Corporation tax…tax relief for trading losses
At present, companies making losses from trading activities are allowed to carry those losses back up to twelve months and set them against profits made in the previous year or to carry them forward indefinitely to set against profits from the same trade.
The Chancellor has announced that, for accounting periods that end between today and 23 November 2009, up to £50,000 of trading losses may be carried back up to three years.
There is no restriction on the amount of the loss that can be carried back twelve months, or carried forward against profits from the same trade.
