Capital gains after selling rental property

Hello all.

Recently sold a rental property but not sure what the implications are for tax purposes, from a reporting point of view, I.e. where do I reflect the capital loss?

Setting the scene.
Bought house for say 300k in 2008
Sold for 220 in 2020, so a loss of 80k (no neg equity thankfully and literally cleared the mortgage give or take 200 euro.).

Annually complete an online form 11, due to the rental income.

My question is do I include he 80k somewhere in the form 11 or is there a separate form I need to complete seperately, which is then automatically included in any form 11 I complete online?

Any help would be great.

Thanks.

There is a cgt section on the form 11 that you complete with the details of the loss

Yes you report in on your 2020 Form 11. There is a section for CGT

So should I have paid any GCT by end of Jan 2020 (even though it's a loss as I sold at a loss) or do I pay when I submit my Form 11?

Thanks.

Ok, that helps, so if I closed/got proceeds mid Dec 2019, I would have to pay GCT by 31 Jan 2020 and then just note it in my form 11 submitted by 31 Oct 2019?

And do I need to complete a separate form in additional to my form 11 or can I do it all on my form 11 when I pay and file?

Thanks.

Are you not making a loss, so where is the CGT payment coming from?

Looks like I was wrong here:

from the link
For disposals made under a written contract, the time of disposal is usually the date of the contract.

Thought that, and agree I am making a loss on the sale (purchase minus sale price) but I suppose I'm just trying to make sure I do it right and reflect in the form 11 and any other form i have to complete(if any cause there is no gain). The December date is throwing me though as my solicitor said technically we did close in Dec 2019 (signed contracts) but with other delays and Covid, handover of keys did not happen until late May.

Or is it the case, I populate the capital loss on the 2019 form 11 which them calculates how much I have to pay from an income tax point of view (if any as I may able to apportion a certain amount) and file .

Appreciate all your responses on this.

the losses are ring fenced to asset sales so no spill over into income tax

So for any capital loss one would not be put against any form 11 total income tax liability once I do my form 11 by end of Oct? So if my income tax liability was 5k and I had a capital loss of 10k, I could not use 5k of the loss to offset the income tax?

So a capital loss carried forward can only be offset against capital gains? So of I never have any capital gains it means i can never offset it.

All correct.

IT and CGT totally separate.
