    I had to fill one out last year and will have to do so again this year, but I let my mum do most of it because she's a finance officer/accountant, so she's used to scary-looking forms! There's a helpline you can ring if you're really struggling though; the number will be somewhere on the form, guidance notes or leaflet that comes with it.

    I'm not sure - but I think you can do it any time and they'll backdate it up to a certain point. There's plenty of time left yet though
