You can still do an average even if one of the figures is nil.

Sorry this assumes the client is still self employed otherwise you wouldn’t be asking. You will need to read all the rules once available.

Thanks for your replies.
Yes he's in the film business and had no projects in 2018/2019 but has in 2019/2020.
My main concern is that the self employed section wasn't completed - tho' a note was made in the white box?

Maybe amend the 2019 return to include S/E pages showing nil income and clarify that the trade continues? Not sure that will make a difference, but it would cover your worry re lack of the S/E pages

If in the film business does he qualify for averaging?

You will almost have to do what previous poster suggested (report nil) otherwise the system simply won't pick up your client as eligible.
