Put your losses to work - Investors Chronicle

Extract: "If HMRC is not notified of the loss within that five year time-frame, it is too late and the loss is lost," explains Mr McGovern. "However, once claimed, there is no time limit within which a reported loss must be used - any historical losses claimed can be accumulated and carried forward to offset against gains incurred many years from now."


Losses must first be offset against any capital gains made in the same tax year. If your total combined capital losses for the year exceed the total capital gains, the difference between the two is the loss available to carry forward to future years.


Remember that you can also claim losses against shares which have become of negligible value, such as Northern Rock or Bradford & Bingley; however, special rules need to be taken into account.


So how do you claim? First, you will need to complete form SA108 - listing the total gains made during the year, the total losses made during the year and the losses left available to carry forward to later years.


To make your claim easier, timetotrade has a Capital Gains Tax calculator on its website (see http://www.timetotrade.eu/wiki/index.php/Capital_Gains_Tax_Calculator) which can help investors calculate their capital gains on shares, unit trusts and open-ended investment company (Oeic) transactions in advance of the October 31 tax return deadline.
