I would use 'reversal' or 'carry-back'.
The following are from L&H Business DA>EN, but you may find them useful.

tilbageføring: retransfer; [bogh.] reversal

tilbageførsel: retransfer, transfer back; [bogh.] adjusting entry, reversal, reversing entry; [regn., skat] carry-back; [økon.] repatriation

Not thje obvious choice, but I believe it fits here - where the much-discussed hvileskjærpenger are being reinstated to their former level. Tilbakeføring otherwise means pay-back, but in this case no payment is involved.
