(a)an accounting period of twelve months ending during the financial year ending with 31st March 1998; or, if there is none,

(b)if there is an accounting period of any other length which ends in that year, the period of twelve months which ends with the last day of the last such accounting period, or, if there is none,

(c)the twelve months ending with 31st March 1998.

(a)an accounting period of twelve months ending during the relevant preceding year; or, if there is none,

(b)if there is an accounting period of any other length which ends in the relevant preceding year, the period of twelve months which ends with the last day of the last such accounting period, or, if there is none,
