I would suggest going to an assessor and ask them for advice etc.
Hi thank you for your opinion/advice. I have contributed to no SS. I have a degree *in my original country in Pharmacy so when I come down with something I rely on going to the pharmacy and convincing them that I know what I am talking about when it comes to "x" antibiotic to treat "x" condition.
I have contributed 0 returns so I am afraid now that if I do go to an assessor he/she may say "pay up for the last year." I don't have 2000 euros to put down all of a sudden for missed tax returns.
