How does a soletrader deal with goodwill?


I am completing accounts/SA for a sole trader who has bought a business that has goodwill included in their balance sheet valuation.  I wanted to check what the correct treatment was for amortising goodwill for a sole trader?  Whether there were any specific write down rules?

I also understand that tax relief can not be claimed on the goodwill amortisation?  Could somebody clarify the situation for me? 

Thank you for your help
