CGT offset time limit?

CGT offset time limit?

I have recently sold a property and I am now in the process of calculating my Capital Gains Tax (CGT) bill.

I bought shares in some companies some years ago which went in to receivership.

Does anyone know if there is a time limit when the loss can be offset against any gain for calculating my CGT bill?

Many Thanks.

There is no time limit attached to allowable capital losses, providing they have been correctly recorded on your tax returns.
