Hello, I'm a little confused about what to put in the "Losses available to be carried forward" box for the 2022/23 tax year. My "Gains in the year, before losses" was £3,319 and my "Losses in the year" was £23,911. I'm not sure if a) the full £23,911 losses are able to be carried forward because £3,319 is less than the CGT allowance of £12,300 b) or the losses available to be carried forward are £23,911 minus £3,319 = £20,592 Thanks for your help

The losses are set against your gains, before the annual exempt allowance is applied, so the loss to carry forward would be the reduced figure.
