The following Corporation Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
UK property business losses are deducted from total profits (if any) in the period in which the loss is incurred.
From 1 April 2017, any UK property business loss that has not been deducted in the current period and has not been relieved under the group relief provisions of CTA 2010, Parts 5 or 5A may be relieved against total profits in a later accounting period upon the making of a claim for all or part of the loss. The claim must be made within two years of the end of that later accounting period, or such longer period as HMRC allows.

There is a significant restriction on the amount of profits arising from 1 April 20
