There are two types of net losses you can bring forward.
Specified activity net losses
|If you’re claiming specified activity net losses and need help with this question, please contact Inland Revenue.|
Other net losses
|Other net losses are all those incurred from the 1991 income year onwards and those not limited before 1991.|
Where to find your net loss to bring forward
You can find the amount of net loss you have to bring forward on the “Loss/excess imputation credits carried forward” letter Inland Revenue sent you after your 2019 notice of assessment or return acknowledgement. If you don’t have this letter, contact Inland Revenue and they will send it to you.
