BTC Question PCTCT

I am using the Kaplan book - Specimen paper question page 460.

I'm calculating PCTCT and there is a Non Trade Profit £3,900. Thats fine I add this to the trading profit after capital allowances are deducted.

What Kaplan's answer is £3,900 less debt written off loan to a supplier of £2,400.

The thing is I have already added the £2,400 back to the Net Profit to get the correct Adjusted Trade Profit figure.

The Kaplan book is so full of errors on the mock exam practice papers, so I don't know if it is the book that is wrong or me.

Help - I am starting to worry now

    Hi Schauzer!
    I agree with you a lot of mistakes on Kaplan book I went back working some of the task yesterday when I check my answer its completely different.

    I give up I don't want to shutter my confidence for the last minute I have focus on the revision papers that they sent it to me.

    Good luck!
