The increases are approximately 1.024% across the board. Whilst this may not seem significant on a claim by claim basis, this will add substantial sums to combined reserves.

We are ensuring that all our handlers use the revised figures for relevant claims in due course and our clients will also need to ensure that their reserves for relevant claims on or after 1 April 2020 reflect the increased charges.
