Question on partnership accounting

how to treat partnership profits in the partners SA return

I have a partnership client who started trading 24 Nov 2014. They prepare their accounts to 31 October each year. Their previous accountant submitted their 14/15 tax return to cover 25/11/14- 5/4/15 which I understand; however, their 15/16 tax return covered 6/4/15- 31/10/15 only so before I go off on one, can I check with anyone that it's incorrect? I believe the 15/16 tax return should have covered 6/4/15- 5/4/16 with an overlap of 7 month overlap.

If my assumption is correct how would I remedy this?

Thanks

My understanding is
1st year - 25/11/14-5/4/15
2nd year - 25/11/14-24/11/15 - 12 months for 2015-16
4 months overlap
3rd year - 1/11/15-31/10/16 - 12 months for 2016-17
1 month overlap
