Losses for the year
Losses for the year – the total losses arising in the year. This field may not be editable if disposals have been entered in the Disposals tab. To override the figure, use the Gains Summary tab to enable the override of summary figures.

- Amount relating to shares to which EIS/Seed EIS relief is attributable – enter the amount of the loss being used against income which relates to EIS/Seed EIS shares. See HMRC Helpsheet 297 Enterprise Investment Scheme and Capital Gains Tax and HMRC Helpsheet 393 Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme – Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax reliefs.

Allocation of losses
