Document What is meant by ‘the tax year previous to last’?

When assessing any applicable spouse, partner, civil partner or child's income, we require their income details from the tax year previous to last.
This income period is the tax year prior to the latest completed tax year ending before your academic year begins.
For example, if your academic year begins in September 2018 or January 2019, the tax year previous to last will be 6 April 2016 to 5 April 2017.
