    If you go into User Tools -
    Manage Version (last on the list on the left)
    and click 'old version'

    Right...I'm back!

    At the top blue bar you should see the white box that reads 'Benefits and Tax Credits'
    Click on the little arrow
    Scroll to the top of the list that appears
    User Control Panel
    Click the link and then on the list that appears (on the left hand side) Choose, Manage versions it's the last on the list...
    Choose 'old version'

    I'm not the best at explaining things..

    You're welcome.... I disliked the new version myself.

    As for your original question...I can't advise you I'm afraid, but I'm sure someone will be along shortly that can.

    Good luck xx

    If you're looking to go self employed the quickest way is via HMRC:-
    https://online.hmrc.gov.uk/shortforms/form/CWF1ST?dept-name=CWF1&sub-dept-name=&location=40&origin=http://www.hmrc.gov.uk
