Tax credit application - based on last years maternity

I'm applying for tax credits for first time. The form asks me for income details 2015/16. I was on maternity leave so that year looks low. This year will be more but the form doesn't ask for that info anywhere.

Won't I be overpaid credits and end up owing them?

Once your award has been made based on the 2015/16 call the tax credit office and give an estimated income for this year, your award will then be recalculated.
