BTL loss offset against share vest?

Hi all,

I hope you are well. I sold a BTL last year at a loss of 6k. Can I offset that loss against upcoming work shares that are vesting?


  • You can carry forward a loss from disposals against any future capital gains indefinitely but you must inform HMRC of the loss. 

    Presumably you have fully declared the disposal of the BTL and there should be no issue.

    If you have claimed the loss on the BTL (usually by putting it on the relevant tax return, but must be done within 4 years) and the share gain is a capital gain rather than being subject to income tax, yes.
