Posted on: 13 March 2020

In a BDO’s briefing, Philip Parr, the firm’s Tax Partner – Shipping & Transport, says that the good news for the shipping sector in the 2020 Budget is that the UK Government has continued to ensure stability for the industry. As a consequence, the measures in the Budget will not impact the shipping sector any more than all businesses generally.

The main changes that may be of interest are as follows:

  • the use of capital losses will in future be restricted in a similar manner as for trading losses
