It appears the salaries from 01/07/23 to 30/09/23 are incorrectly allocated in the ratio of 3:2 instead of the 2:1 ratio stated in the question. Therefore it should be £1666.67 for Doug and £833.33 for Rob. Making the total allocations £11,100 and £6,900 respectively. Correct me if i am wrong please.

Can the answer to question 15 part c be explained as this does not make sense for me.

In addition as Frank is a replacement partner this is considered to be his first year of trading so how can he relieve trading losses against prior years tax assessments if he has not been trading

Are the y/e dates correct in the Answer to Example 2? The y/e dates where 2021,2022, & 2023.

Mattmillion says

Example # 2 has y/e dates of 2021,2022, & 2023 but the answer to example 2 has y/e 2022,2023 & 2024 is this an error in the dates?

It appears the the question is asking for the accounting period ended 30 September 2023 instead, based on the answer in the book.
