The 2014-15 tax return allows you to claim within that return a freestanding credit for relief for losses brought back from 2015-16, despite that the loss claim is for 2015-16.
That facility does not appear to be possible for anticipating the consequences of an averaging election between 2014-15 and 2015-16, despite that it could have a significant impact on the amount payable on 31 Jan.
I have difficulty getting my head around why one should be possible but not the other. Maybe I should not try to get my head around it but just accept it. Has anyone else had success with putting in an early averaging claim as above, and if so how did you do it and were you successful?
With kind regards
