The ability of companies to preserve and utilise carry forward tax losses continues to present challenges both for taxpayers and Government Revenue.
This paper covers:

- challenges faced by taxpayers in satisfying the “continuity of ownership” and “same business” tests
- losses in the consolidation context, including transfers of losses to the head company of a consolidated group and available fraction calculations
- current ATO compliance activity around loss claims.
