Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to assist you with your question. The news I bring will not, I suspect, be to your liking. I am very sorry to have to tell you that you won't. However, if, after taking into account all expenses, you have actually made a loss then this can be used as follows: Set off gainst other income or capital gains of the same yearSet off against other income or capital gains of the previous yearUse a loss in the early years (first four) of a trade [ie carry back over the first four years]Carry forward against future profits of same trade I am so sorry to have to rain on your parade.
