Employer pension contributions, can I backdate or amend?

Hi everyone, I run a limited company, and I’m looking for some advice on employer pension contributions.

Basically, I had no idea until recently that it was possible for my company to pay into my pension on my behalf, reducing my corp tax bill. So I missed taking advantage of this in my tax year just gone (Nov 18-19). I now have quite a chunky corporation tax liability (and a still-empty pension).

My question is, is there any possible way to amend my accounts to incorporate a company pension payment? The accounts are not due to submit until August. Would extending my business tax year enable me to do this? Or is there any other way?
