    I have a partnership for which I complete a return. My first return was last year and the partnership registered a loss. The second year has also registered a loss. When it comes to the partnership section of my self assessment there is a box in the section "trading or professional profits" where you can enter "Losses brought forward from earlier years set-off against 6 April 2019 to 5 April 2020 profit." Do I put here the loss that the partnership made last year, even though there's not yet a profit to set it off against? Does this keep rolling each year until a profit is made and it can be off-set? Beneath this field it says "Taxable profits after losses brought forward: £0.00" but when I enter a figure this adjusted to -£x.xx (the figure I had entered).
