I can’t answer re the dates for outbound travel (I think it is ‘before’ though. I also believe you are good for both applying to inbound as only the first leg needs to be taken prior to the voucher expiry.

You could book your inbound flights online, if you have enough Avios to cover all 4 flights without the companion voucher reduction. You can then call later on to have the 50% reduction applied to the inbound redemption. I’ve done this successfully in the past and am about to do it again in a week for 4 seats where the outbound is booked with 2 x companion vouchers. I have seen others say that some call centre agents won’t do the 50% reduction/refund though, so perhaps HUACA may be needed.
