For the first year of trading the assessable profits will always be from the date of trading to 6th April.
Therefore in this case for 09/10 you have to calculate the profits from 1 May 09  6 April 10.
The profits from 1 May 09  31 January 10 are 33570.
You then have to calculate the profits from 1 Feb 10 to 31st March 10.
The profits for the y/e 31 Jan 11 are 87000  therefore 2 months will be 2/12 x 87000 = 14500.
33570 + 14500 = 48070.
I find this topic difficult but this article really helped me!

the profits from 1 May 09  6 April 10 >>> it's for 11 months
why we do not calculate : 33750*11\12=30937.5
how you choose this period "The profits from 1 May 09  31 January 10 are 33570"??
any stander ruls for the period??
thanks alot for ur replay0
