Accounting period shortened by one day

Evening all,

Got a new client whose previous accountant shortened the accounting period (ltd co) by one day so now it falls on what feels like an odd day to me 30th Jan. I suppose the choice is either to extend the period which would create 2 tax returns or leave it as it and remember that it’s not the end of Jan.

I’m thinking of charging for 2 tax returns as I’m concerned it will catch me out in future.
