Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Do I submit without the CGT section and then amend in the next few months? If I submit online, does it allow me to amend it later and will there be any penalties it?
Ok, thanks Sam. I want to double check, once I claim a loss in one tax year and then in the next tax year if I don't have any CGT gains or losses to declare, I don't need to create CGT section just to carry forward previous losses?
I asked the HMRC helpline this question a couple of years ago and they said no need to submit CGT section if nothing to declare as previous losses would rollover but thought I'd better check this with you.So the key point is that as long as I have declared the loss and added it to previous losses, it is there to offset against whenever I have a future CGT gain but I don't need to keep carrying it forward?
Thanks again help.
