Carried-forward excess management expenses
Allowable management expenses arising from 1 April 2017 that exceed a company's total profits and cannot be relieved in full in the current accounting period and have not been surrendered as group relief, are carried forward and may be deducted from the company's total profits of the next accounting period. This is as long as the company carries out an investment business in the next accounting period. A claim is required, within two years of the end of the period in which the company wishes to set off the carried-forward management expenses against total profits. CTA 2009, s 1223
