Just ring them up. they will probably want date you started self employment, the fact that you are self employed, how many hours a week you work (on average) and your estimated profit (income less expenses) till the end of the tax year (abt 6 April 2013).

Hey they will be fine with the month - you were just waiting to see what your average wage would work out to be! Will want any employed pay in this tax year and would u expect to earn before April xx
