- Tick Tick box if you are claiming Entrepreneur's Relief or any other reliefs or elections for this asset e.g. Private Residence Relief, EIS Deferral Relief, Roll over / Hold Over relief.
- Enter the amount of loss in EIS deferral relief. This box is for informational purposes only and will not decrease any gains/tax due at this point.
- Go to the 2015–16 losses screen and tick the box Do you wish to change the way in which losses are off-set?
- Enter the amount of loss in the appropriate box, depending on how you want to allocate this.
If offsetting losses against previous years, go to Working out your tax > Tax Adjustments > Adjustments to an earlier year, that decrease your tax and enter the tax adjustment – this is the difference in tax due in prior years after carrying the loss back to that year.
