  • “section 60 shortfall”, in relation to a scheme, means the increase in the value of the scheme assets required by section 60(2) as the result of a serious shortfall valuation, less any payment made to the trustees or managers by or on behalf of the employer since the valuation to secure the whole or part of that increase;

  • “section 75(1) shortfall”, in relation to a scheme, means so much of the amount treated by section 75(1) as a debt due from the employer to the trustees or managers at the applicable time (as defined in section 75(3)) as is attributable to the value of the scheme assets falling short of the amount of the scheme liabilities by more than 10 per cent;

  • “the shortfall period”, in relation to a scheme, means the period beginning with the signing of a serious shortfall valuation for the scheme and ending with the signing of a minimum funding valuation which is not a serious shortfall valuation.
