    Hello all.

    So I've recently submitted my SFE application for my second year of my degree at university. Like the previous year application, I applied for the "loan and grant" option.

    I completed my own SFE information and so did my father. So far so good right? My father is the one who brings the income in, and my mother is unemployed as she has been for the past few years. I was helping her through her SFE account financial information since she's one of those people who aren't "up to date with technology" nowadays.

    So here's where the problem is: when we started applying, it asked for a HMRC document. We clicked no, but in hindsight she might have had it. Instead we completed a self assessment form, which amounted to zilch (£0). So would the HMRC document if we knew for sure we had it.

    To my relief it said HMRC would check this information, but at the same time, if she did have the HMRC document and we said we hadn't received it, will it penalise us? That's my concern, and we were unable to modify this information after it had been selected. Any suggestions?

    No don't worry about it.

    people lose documents all the time, you won't be penalised for it.
