We too had a diabetic cat - injections were not viable for us as they need you to do them at set times twice a day and we don't live that kind of a life! Monday to Friday would have been ok but weekends not so vet gave us tablets - metformin I think - usually used for humans but ok for cats too. She had 3 years on them before her pancreatis started to play up and she had to be put down.

For the record I still have 35 returns to prepare out of my original 286. Of the 35, 20 are "untouched by human hand" and the information has not yet been received. There are 15 that are works in progress and a further 27 are out with clients for approval. It is the same few who are late every year - they are always effuse in their apologies for being late but they just add to my grey hairs! I have managed to educate some of my late comers to produce the information earlier and was very pleased to get them done before Christmas. I dislike the last minute rush jobs as that is when errors are likely to creep in.

Out for signature 27
In progress 24
Unstarted 39 - mostly not in.
More or less the same names as last year with the notable exception on my 4 normal 31 January ones who are mostly now done - now that's quite something!

Likewise, I would say that 80% of the returns I have done so far have had to be filed on paper.

Because it is an HMRC error you should have until 31 January to file the paper return without penalty. I have done this on a previous occasion when we only learned that the client's return could not be filed on line on 30 January. There will be a 'reason for filing on paper' form that you should send in with the return on which you give details of the particular exclusion that applies to your client - it will have a reference number, I seem to recall, that you will need to quote. You may get an automatic penalty, I did, but you simply quote their reference back at them to get the penalty cancelled.
