New client on board has the follow situation:
They became self employed in August 2017 and registered for SA straight away and obtained a UTR. For some unknown reason HMRC did not issue him with a tax return for 17/18 and he to date hasnt prepared one.
His income and expenditure accounts prepared by book-keeper show profit of £6k and his only other income in that tax year was £1k of employment income.
What are his options here other than preparing tax return and being hit with some hefty fines?
