3.3.8 Losses on the sale of shares, etc. (RF-1088)
Applies to the income year 2017
This item should be pre-filled with the net loss from shares from Norwegian limited liability companies and foreign companies listed on Oslo Stock Exchange and which is stated in form "Aksjer og egenkapitalbevis" (Shares and equity certificates – in Norwegian only) (RF-1088).
Does this item concern me?
The item concerns everyone who has sold shares during the income year at a loss that gives entitlement to a deduction.
How do I enter this in my tax return?
The tax return will only be pre-filled for realisations where the Tax Administration has all the information necessary to calculate the gain/loss.
Any information missing?
If the Tax Administration does not have all the necessary information, e.g. because we do not know the sales fee, the gain/loss for this realisation will not be calculated in the tax return.
In form RF-1088 Aksjeoppgaven (Shares and equity certificates – in Norwegian only), you will find a footnote under item 120 which states that we are missing information that is needed to calculate the gain/loss for one or more realisations. You must then go to Table 3b in form RF-1088 to find these realisations. You must add the missing figures and enter the gain/loss for these realisations directly in your tax return.
If the information is wrong
If the amount in RF-1088 is wrong or it says "ukjent" (unknown), you must correct the figures that are incorrect or missing and enter the correct deductible loss under item 3.3.8 of the tax return.
If you change the amount under item 3.3.8 of the tax return, you must then submit the tax return. You must then go to Table 3b in form RF-1088 Aksjeoppgaven (Shares and equity certificates – in Norwegian only) to find the details for all the realisations.
You do not need to send us any documentation concerning this, but you must be able to present it upon request.
