However, he only realizes this in January and so wishes to backdate the document to December.

Needless to say, even these methods of “backdating” a document should not be used when there was no earlier agreement and the document is just an attempt to give a false impression that something occurred on an earlier date than it did.Is it legal to comply with the request or must it always be refused outright?Alternatively, is there a way of legally trying to achieve the required objective?It is not straight forward and can give problems to any lawyer that agrees to backdate a document, even if he makes it clear on the document that it is backdated, as he must be careful to make sure that he knows why the document is being backdated and that it is being done for a legitimate reason.Therefore, if in doubt it is best to say “no” or to take external legal advice if appropriate.
