    If you click on the ? by the "Loss to carry forward to following year, including unused losses brought forward:"

    it takes you to this page - https://www.tax.service.gov.uk/infor...rryForwardHelp

    this says "If your loss is higher than your profit, provide the remaining losses available to carry forward in the any other information for other property income."

      Thanks Banzai - I had the same issue and that is how I read the notes that appeared in the question mark on the online form (similar to the note referred to by mjlandlord above but the note is slightly longer for box 39 on the online form). I thought I was going mad so it's assuring to find that I was not the only one panicking!

        Further to my post above, this is also confirmed by HMRC in answer to a forum question:

          Not paying rent reinforces the reservation of benefits position.

          Whilst I believe it would be subject to the 40% marginal rate on that part of the £450k that took the estate over the allowance, my knowledge only really extends to knowing there is an issue in principle, and there may be...

          Ok my mum does not pay rent to me if that matters.
          She originally bought the house for 80k with my dad back in the 90s. He passed away in 2012.

          The house was put as joint tenancy between me and my mum in 2016. Valuation then was around 400 to 450k.
          Now in 2019 house is worth...

          If it is a gift with reservation of benefits, her estate has to pay inheritance tax, as though the full market value, at the time it was gifted, were part of her estate (or you will have to pay the IHT if there is not enough money to cover it). Of course, it is possible that the estate is still within...

          Bit confused now. So maybe it wasnt a good idea to put the house in joint names with mother.
          If we sell the house to buy another house is the cgt implications for me?
          ​​​​​Or say if she passes will i have to pay cgt if i sell the house and move elsewhere?...

          Most of the material on this is US-centric, but I think the transfer was a gift with reservation of benefits, so fully within IHT. It's too obvious a loophole, otherwise.

          Also there is a risk that, if you get into financial difficulties, your mother will end up homeless.

          This...

          There's no CGT on the property that is your main home.
          You both own the property and both live there, so it's not within the CGT regime - unless one of you moves out and it ceases to be your home before you sell it....
