PART IIINWARD TRANSFERS

8.  If the employment in which the person was subject to the previous scheme was comparable British service, he is entitled to count as reckonable service the period of service certified by the person responsible for the management of the scheme as having stood to his credit under the scheme when he ceased to be subject to it.

(b)if sub-paragraph (1)(b) applies and the transfer value was received within 12 months after the date on which the person became employed in reckonable service, the calculation is to be made by reference to his age, and the annual rate of his salary, on that date,

(c)in any other case, the calculation is to be made by reference to his age, and the annual rate of his salary, on the date on which the transfer value was received,

(d)if sub-paragraph (1)(a) applies any sum representing interest that is included in the transfer value is not to be taken into account, and
