Hi

Thanks for your question

As you started self employment in Feb 2013, HMRC will need to have a 2013 tax return completed by you - which is due to them by 31/01/2014 (if filing online) but as you had NIL income, you will only have expenses - most of these I imagine setting up costs to declare - as your declare the position from the period Feb 2013 to 05/04/2013 for self employment and any other income from 06/04/2012 to 05/04/2013 also. But you will owe no tax or Class 4 National Insurance from self employment as you will have a loss (if you had setting up costs) or NIL income arising.
But if you are planning to fill in the paper return please note this is now late and should have been with HMRC by 31/10/2013.

Then when you come to complete the 2014 tax return (which will be for the period 06/04/2013 to 05/04/2014) you will have the income you have earned from self employment and relevant expenses incurred also from that period. (And along with any other income for the period 06/04/2013 to 05/04/2014) and that return has to be with HMRC by 31/10/2014 if filling in the paper return and by 31/01/2015 if filing online, and this also will be the first time you pay any tax that might be owed (at 31/01/2015)

Thanks
