Self assessment accountiing period

Hello, all.

I have a question about Self assessment accountiing period. My client has her own accounting period from Dec 2018 to Dec 2019. When I submit her SA, shall I do two tax returns? One is from Dec 2018 to April 2019( 2018/2019 financial year). the other one is from Dec 2018 to Dec 2019(2019/2020 financial year)? Many thanks.

Caroline.

    Basis periods depend on when your client first started trading
    What date did her business commence?

    Her business started from Dec 2018. she has never done any SA tax returns. This is the first time. So i am thinking i should do two years tax returns for her.

    The yes like you said,
    Dec 18 to 5th April 19 (2018/2019 tax year) which is late
    And Dec 18 to Dec 19 (2019/2020 tax year)
    Which means that your client will be paying tax twice on 3 or 4 months profits
