Consortium relief enables losses of a consortium company to be transferred to consortium members in proportion to the consortium member's interest in the consortium company, and vice versa. Consortium relief is a flexible relief which is available in several different scenarios which are discussed further below. CTA 2010, s 130

Prior to 1 April 2017 consortium relief was only available for current year losses. For losses arising after 1 April 2017 these rules have been relaxed and when post 1 April 2017 losses are carried forward most can be surrendered as consortium relief.
