    We always assume that the company is already making profits and is therefore already paying tax.

    If a new project makes a ‘loss’ then it simply means that the company as a whole makes less profit and therefore pays less tax. So a ‘loss’ from the project results in a tax saving.

    There is never any question of the company as a whole making a loss, and therefore loss relief is irrelevant.
