HMRC internal manual

Capital Gains Manual

Restrictions: capital losses: pre-entry loss: pooled assets

For pooled assets there are separate rules for computing the proportion of a loss to be treated as a pre-entry loss, in paragraphs 3 and 4 Schedule 7A, see CG47640+. Again, an alternative market value election can be made, see CG47740+.

Note: Additional rules relating to loss buying were enacted in FA 2006. See CG47020+ for guidance on the rules which apply in priority to TCGA92/SCH7A for accounting periods ending on or after 5 December 2005.

FA11/S46 and FA11/SCH11 greatly simplified the rules in TCGA92/SCH7A for the deduction of losses on or after 19 July 2011. See CG47400+ for guidance on loss streaming from that date.
