This paper covers the losses issues raised when an entity joins or leaves a consolidated group, including:
- do losses transfer into a consolidated group?
- how is a transferred loss utilised (as compared with other losses)?
- calculating and allocating the joining ACA for a loss company and
- calculating the cost base of the shares in a leaving company (including a consideration of whether a loss on a share sale can ever result).
