I went on maternity leave for a full four months mind February 2012 - Mid June 2012. I was paid for the first two months and then unpaid for the remaining two months. In my IRP5 : Periods in year of assessment is 12 and no. of periods worked is 12. I believe this is incorrect. Do I correct this and say I worked 8 months? What is the correct information to put in this case?

You would leave this as 12 as you maternity leave counts as time spent under employment although you were not paid. So your income was less, but you were still employed for that period. You are still entitled to the calculation based on the actual earnings for the year.
