How to complete the 2021/22 ARR process as a provider

If you're a provider, you're required to confirm each performer's Net Pensionable Earnings (NPE) for the 2021/22 financial year. This process is called the Annual Reconciliation Report (ARR) process, and you need to complete it by 5:59pm on Monday 18 July 2022. 

It's important that you complete the ARR process because each performer's NPE is used to calculate their entitlement to statutory payments, such as sick pay. 

Your health body has provided us with each performer's estimated NPE for the period from April 2021 to March 2022.

What you need to do as a provider

As a provider, you need to check the estimated NPE figures for each of your performers in Compass. To do this, log in to Compass and do the following:

  1. Select the ARR folder.
  2. Select the ARR contract selection option.
  3. Search to populate the grid with your contracts.
  4. Select a contract.

You’ll then see a table listing all of the performers on the contract you’ve selected.

To confirm the NPE for each of your performers, select ‘Accept’ under the ‘Action’ heading. If you want to reject the NPE, select ‘Reject’ from the dropdown menu instead. A box will be displayed where you can enter a revised NPE figure. Select ‘Save’ once you’ve entered the revised figure.

You’ll then see a ‘Declaration’ window. You’ll need to select ‘Ok’ on this.

Once you’ve completed the declaration, an email will be sent to your performers. This email will ask them to confirm the NPE figure in Compass.
