This event was aimed at all accountancy and legal practitioners involved in entities with losses and their professional staff.
Losses come in many different shapes and sizes - on revenue account or capital account - realised and unrealised - corporate, trust and personal. The list goes on.
Many practitioners still adopt a "head in the sand approach" when it comes to utilising tax losses and ignore or simply don't understand the complicated tax laws that need to be satisfied to properly claim such losses.
This event considered these issues so that delegates had the right information to properly claim losses.
