In 2012 / 2013 my partner made a loss on their self employment. We set part of this off against income she made from PAYE and carried the remainder forward. I seem to remember the worksheet for this section on self assessment online helped set this up for us. This year 2013 / 2014 there is also a small loss, which is not being set off against other income, so we'd like to carry this forward too. When filling in the worksheet for this section I've added it together with the figure from 2012 / 2013 for the 'Total loss to carry forward after all other set-offs including unused losses brought forward'. However I've just been reading the helpsheet on losses here:
This says "You cannot claim only part of the loss", so does this mean she's not actually able to carry forward the remaining loss from 2012 / 2013 as we already set part of it off against her income that year? If so then should the box for 'Total loss to carry forward...' only contain the figure for this year's (2013 / 2014) loss?
