Why would a loss on disposal be 'capitalized'?

Why would a loss on disposal be capitalized? It's a P&L item. Your accountant will be able to complete the double entry for you (and make the relevant entries in the CT comp).

I thought it could be justified as costs of purchasing new premises as if we didn't move to new one and then  disposal would not be necessary , and costs on buying new property could be capitalised

You thought wrong

And were you also going to capitalise the gain or loss on disposal of the property? After all, if you weren't going to move, the gain or loss would not arise.
