Reply To: Backdating – second opinion needed!

Peter Barker

Even if your working age scheme has imported “good cause” backdating rules from HB, there is nothing to stop you from making a discretionary reduction under s13A(1)(c) of the LGFA if you consider the circumstances to be sufficiently compelling.

And it is possible that the scheme does not successfully limit backdating, depending how it’s drafted. There are some shockers out there.
