The provision for claims and legal proceedings relates to claims and proceedings against the Group on the grounds of alleged failure to perform professional duties and other legal matters. The Group carries professional indemnity insurance. The provision for claims/legal proceedings is determined following an evaluation of the matters that resulted in the Group being held liable by third parties, or the matters in which the relevant circumstances are such that it is reasonable to assume that they will result in the Group being held liable on the grounds of alleged failure to perform professional duties.

An assessment has been made on a case-by-case basis as to whether it is probable that the case will involve an outflow of resources from the Group. The estimates of both the probability of an outflow of resources and the amounts required involve estimation uncertainty. In general, such proceedings are long-term in nature and estimates are therefore revised from time to time. The amounts provided for include legal expenses and are presented net of expected reimbursements from the insurance company where appropriate.
