Well, it depends on the actual expenses, in theory losses can be carried forward. The disallowing of expenses is before the loss is created so it depends on what the expenses are and if the trust ever makes a profit. 11(a) and 23(g) reads that expenses must be expenses for the purposes of trade, if the trust is not seen to be actively trading then the expenses are disallowed.
