The rules for use of tax losses have once again been subjected to considerable change. This paper analyses the recent reforms as they affect corporate groups. Case studies are used to analyse:
- the new continuity of ownership test
- impact of the abolition of the same business test on corporate acquisitions
- the same business test applied to consolidated groups
- tricks in applying pre consolidation losses to post consolidation gains
- the loss denial rules.
