Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and happy to help you with your question.
Unfortunately your claim is out of time. A loss is not an allowable loss unless it is notified to HMRC (statutory authority: s.16(2A) TCGA 1992), and the time limit for that notification is 5 years from the filing deadline for the return for the year in which the loss arises (s.43(1) TMA 1970). You could always see if HMRC are prepared to accept such a belated claim, but I personally wouldn't bet on it!
I am so sorry to have to rain on your parade.
I think I might try to claim. Can you tell me how to action.
Is there a std form HMRC Number or do I write to them and where would I send.
There is no standard form, you merely write a letter to your tax office. Always quote your NI number and, if you have it, your UTR number too.
