    my notes say that a company can not use gift aid pmt as an allowable deduction as it would be a duplication of tax relief. Therefore I make the pctct 49476 also

    it didn't even mention when the gift aid was made, and there wasn't even another CAP in the question which is very strange!

    that's my answer too, but the suggested answer didn;t deduct gift aid.
    maybe its a error on the book

    I reckon it's a BIG error in the book as it's been added back on in the calculating the adjusted trading profit...

    I'm pretty sure there are a few in these books...

    I think the answer may be wrong also, it is right that they have added back gift aid in the first place when adjusting the profits but they should have taken it off again afterwards to get to the PCTCT. I made the answer:

    Net profit 37,270
    Add depr. 45,060
    Add legal 5,400
    Add director speed 200
    Add gift aid 1,500
    Deduct cap all. (52,710)
    Adjusted prof = 36,720

    Then:
    Adjusted profits 36,720
    Add gain 14,256
    Subtotal 50,976
    Less gift aid (1,500)
    PCTCT 49,476
