Break Compensatory Fasts

Q: When Observing one’s compensatory fast, may one nullify it for whatever reason?

A: Assuming it's before ẓuhr, it's unproblematic; however, breaking one’s compensatory fast after ẓuhr is not permissible; doing so entails the payment of 7½ kg of food to the needy ( ¾ kg per needy person). Assuming one doesn’t have the financial means to render such food, he/she ought to fast for three days for every broken compensatory fast.
