Client 100% owned 2 Ltd companies, one went into liquidation and the other bought the assets from the receiver

Client 100% owned 2 Ltd companies, one went...

Client owns 100% of Co A and Co B. Co B was struggling financially and Co A settled many debts on its behalf creating a £40K inter Co loan account debtor.

Co B eventually went bust and Co A purchased the assets in a deal with the receiver. This left the inter co debt that will never be paid.

This debt must now be written off in Co A as it is no collectable but I was wondering whether it would be tax deductable as a bad debt given the connected status of the Director in both Companies?

Thank you

Relief for bad debts applies to debts arising through normal trading. These aren't so no relief will be available.
