How to enter multiple trades on the CT600?

Article ID: 1299
Last updated: 24 Mar, 2020

Unfortunately, you cannot enter multiple trades on the CT600.

Instead you need to enter the combined figures into the computation to show the overall position and then attach a PDF computation for each trade to show the individual computations. This can be done in either SimpleStep or HMRC Forms mode:

SimpleStep mode

  1. Go to CT600 Core > Trade and professional income > Tax adjusted profit/loss – disallowable expenditure.
  2. Enter the net effect of the trades added together in the box labelled Profit/(loss) on ordinary activities before taxation.
  3. To declare a loss separately, enter the amount in the box labelled Other expenditure not analysed above – click on the wizard icon to enter a description of the loss (for example, loss from second trade).
  4. Go to Computation Management , click on Edit Notes > select Profit and Loss on the left menu > Trading Losses Summary.
  5. Enter the amount of losses.

HMRC Forms mode

  1. Go to CT600 Core > Computations > Tax adjusted profit/loss – disallowable expenditure.
  2. Enter the net effect of the trades added together in the box labelled Profit/(loss) on ordinary activities before taxation.
  3. To declare a loss separately, enter the amount in the box labelled Other expenditure not analysed above – click on the wizard icon to enter a description of the loss (for example, loss from second trade).
  4. Go to Computation Management , click on Edit Notes > select Profit and Loss on the left menu > Trading Losses Summary.
  5. Enter the amount of losses.

How to attach the PDF computation documents to the return

  1. In the CT600, click on Check & Finish.
  2. Click on Attach.
  3. Under Other, click on Add Other PDF.
  4. Browse to find the PDFs.
  5. Select the PDFs and click on Open to attach them – make sure the file extension (.pdf) is lowercase.
