Customer Question

I am having a problem entering my "previous losses" on the CT600 - where do they go (please)?

On CT600 (for small limited company) I am confused as where to enter the previous years losses (reserves). Is it in the "Revaluation Reserve in box AC77 & AC76 ?? and if so how can the AC218 (retined profit) equal AC75 which is P&L (without reserve)?
