Offsetting loss against other income

A sole trader client uses cash basis accounting and has made a loss in the first year. Client is also employed and is a higher rate tax payer. Can the loss be taken into account against the income from employment or should the loss be carried forward against potential future profits?

    I believe on the cash basis you can only carry forward against future trading losses, you can't apply against other income.
