Corporation Tax self assessment (CTSA): group relief - general: specify amount claimed

Every group relief claim must specify and quantify the amount of relief claimed at the time the claim is made. In the context of a group relief claim, ‘quantify’ means that the claim must be expressed in figures, as opposed to a formula, (FA98/SCH18/PARA68).


Valid claim to group relief

  • ‘Company A claims £43,319 group relief from Company B’.

Invalid claim to group relief

  • ‘Company A claims sufficient group relief from Company B to reduce its profits to £150,000’.

A group relief claim must also specify the name of the surrendering company. A claimant company has to make a separate claim to group relief from each surrendering company for each accounting period.
