A loss from a company can only be carry forward up to 7 years after the year in question (7 years carry-forward). After that, these losses are lost. Losses from 2010 will evaporate as of 31 December 2017. In order to prevent loss evaporation, the profit may perhaps be increased by, for example, postponing costs and expenses or having provisions released. Or perhaps hidden reserves can be realized in your business assets and / or activities.
