Estimating self-employed income for tax credits.

My husband's tax year runs from Aug to Aug, but tax credits asks for income / profit from April to April. So, we estimate. It will be less last year for the tax credits year than his tax year. I'm worried HMRC might check his tax return and think we've given the wrong figures and under-estimated. Does anyone else have a similar situation or any advice? Many thanks. PS It's been fine in the past.
