    Probably looking for the PCTCT (Profits chargeable to corp tax) figure.
    The information given is enough for you to calculate this.

    Please see below:-

    Profits earned 35,000

    Capital Gain 8,000
    Capital Loss (5,000)

    Capital Gain 3,000

    Less b/f loss (5,000)

    Total 33,000

    Gift aid is assumed to be gross
    for Ltd Co. (800)

    PCTCT 32,200

    Capital gains and losses are set off against each other, if it was a capital loss it would have been carried forward to the next tax year and set against any gains in that tax year until it was used up.

    Gift aid is the very last item to be deducted, so if the company had made a loss the gift aid would be lost. It can not be carried forward to the next tax year.

    Hope this helps
