Document Can my NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate be backdated to cover NHS dental treatment I've previously claimed for?

No, your NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate start date is determined by the date HMRC deemed you eligible and cannot be backdated under any circumstances.
If you've been sent a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) relating to NHS dental treatment that was completed before your certificate started, you're liable for all charges unless you held any other valid exemption at the time.
