Keytime Corporation Tax

The Finance Bill 2019/20 restricts companies’ use of carried-forward capital losses to 50% of capital gains from 1st April 2020. Companies are allowed unrestricted use of up to £5m capital or income losses each year, meaning the majority are unaffected. Changes to the software to support this restriction have been implemented in this release.
