A loaned B €1m. 50% was used to buy an asset and 50% to finance trading.
B subsequently sells the asset for €500k and pays this to A. A writes off the balance.
Is there guidance on how to allocate the repayment between revenue and capital?

I think Kevin means Company A does not get a deduction

Peter it doesn’t matter. The write off of the loan is ignored in both companies. Company A does get a deduction for it and company B is not charged to tax on the income.
