An issue has been reported in Reckon APS Tax 2019.1.2 where the Industry code does not flow through to the P9 from - Business Income worksheet. This issue affects some 2018 Individual tax returns.

Loss type 8 means that the taxpayer isn't allowed to use any of the other loss types (which allow the loss). While it defaults to 8 when transferred to the main form, the user is meant to apply his/her mind to the question so that the right choice is made. If the loss is not allowed, the user needs to select 8 and then the industry code will flow through.
