National Minimum Wage Increase

September 1, 2015


Remember, from 1 October 2015 the National Minimum Wage will be increasing as follows:


  • £6.70 for workers aged 21 and over

  • £5.30 for workers aged 18-20 years

  • £3.87 for workers aged 16-17 years above school leaving age but under 18

  • £3.30 for apprentices in their first year of their apprenticeship


Don’t forget, you are not required to pay the NMW to employees who are family members and live in the family home. You also won’t have to pay NMW to a Director (unless they have a contract of service) or volunteers.


Don’t confuse the NMW with the National Living Wage (NLW) provisions coming into force on 6 April 2016 affecting employees 25 and over which we will report on at a later date.
