Question:  I'm having difficulty distributing CGT gains from a trust to beneficiary, The trust itself had a Tax loss but when I try to distribute the CGT Gain, it will also distribute the loss for the business income.

Answer: Open each beneficiary and choose "manual" as distribution type for you to be able to manually enter the gains and put zero in the Business income since it is a loss.

Note, Net capital gain is not distributed from Beneficiary worksheet. Instead user can create CGT worksheet in one of the individuals and fill it there.
