The Office for National Statistics has now published the latest figures from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE), which includes the revised figures for 2021 and the provisional figures for 2022. The key index for those administering Periodical Payment Orders (PPOs) is ASHE 6115, which is an index based on an amalgamation of care earnings data from two Standard Occupational Classifications (SOC). The weighting of the data within the new ASHE 6115 differs to the previous basis for calculation, requiring a need for re-classification of the base PPO annual sum in addition to the recalculation of the sum due this year. This note addresses the changes, the implications, and the actions to be taken.
